He’d had a long day. In the best way.
We rode our bike to the Blue Line, took it to the end, went to my sister’s. Homemade pizza was consumed, flowers picked, running barefoot outside. I saw my kid’s capacity to care and love as he doted over his new cousin. We said goodbye to my baby sister as she leaves for Spain where she’ll no doubt grow(up maybe) and learn to hug(ha ha.) The hot summer air on the bike ride home, it was all just so…..perfect.
