yesterday was an out-of-sorts-from-the-(late)-start, may-i-please-have-a-do-over day.
today, i am up before the sun and determined it will be better.
a new day is a do-over.
and i think this peek at my little trip south is just the cheerful start i need.
have i ever told you that i like my parents? and their homey-house? and their eccentric dog, jake?
i know you know i love them.
but i like them, too. i like them as friends, as people, as keepers of my secrets. i like them as joke-makers and makers of my favorite breakfast. i like them as constants in a world that isn't always so. i just plain like them. i like them hard.
