almost exactly this time last year, i was enjoying that bucket of fries with my two favorite fellas.
we were at the beach in maryland, watching seagulls hunt for scraps and kids chasing waves.
if i think hard enough, i can taste those fries and smell that ocean breeze. delightful. man, i miss those fries.
that trip was the last time i saw my dad. and after over a year, i will see my sweet pops again.
he's arriving next month. yeah, my mom is coming, too. and that's great, but she visits more often.
so the true excitement here is, the kingfish boss. let's be real. sorry, mama.
i'm excited about hearing his voice in person, he has a legit voice. the soothing, southern kind.
i hear him speak nearly every week via the internets. he might be my favorite preacher.
chats with my dad? they are informative, thoughtful and witty. to the max.
i'm looking forward to being on vacation. because when my parents are here, that's what it is.
my kitchen will be extra busy and my child extra wild, but it will be a magical time.
speaking of magical, my sister is only a few weeks away from having her second baby girl.
can't wait to see what this sweet baby will look like. will she have a huge head and pretty face like her mama?
and what super cute name will she get?
you know. i was thinking. about how random my thoughts are. and that i feel free to share them here.
there are so many things that occupy my mind day to day, that never make the blog, or anywhere beyond my own mind.
i think it's important to keep much to myself, that's why i only share a fraction here.
there are a few things though, that i know i could share. even should share, sometime. with someone.
but i don't feel secure to open a number of discussions here. i'm not confident i could ever do them justice.
i feel inadequate, ill-equipped to speak and foster discourse on certain topics.
so. although i am quite passionate about things like marriage, gender roles, theology, politics...
it's likely that i'll only ever talk at length about those in person.
this is where i keep glimpses of god's grace. some of my story, a few of my thoughts and plenty of my favorite things.
like my family. and fries.
