This is an outfit I wore once while I was in Sarasota, and since I’m missing Florida so much, I wanted to at least wear something that reminded me of the good times I had down there. Things in Illinois have been a little stressful lately, and it’s really got me wishing for some extra downtime.
Not that there haven’t been fun things to do here at home. Taking Moxie for a walk has never been such a treat–everything is green, green, green and the air is perfumed with all kinds of wonderful scents. And there have been so many get-togethers with friends and family, from weddings to movie nights.
Really, I think I’m just missing those old summer vacations, even though I’ve been working through the summer for about a decade. I miss not having responsibilities and being able to eat as much ice cream as I want without consequences. I want to spend my days in swimsuits and my nights at parties. I want to spend hours drinking in books. I want to ride my bike until my legs hurt. I don’t want to worry about getting enough sleep before work, and I certainly don’t want to spend eight hours at my desk every day.
I want to be a kid again.
