farmer's market flowers

here: a little girl plays with cousins and giggles and runs and plays with sidewalk chalk and seems to feel at home

here: the familiar roads of my childhood

here: watermelon as a late-night snack

here: middle-of-the-night thunder cracking, lightning across the sky storm

here: we are all reminded that we exist because of those who came before us

here: "you could almost slice a knife through it" humidity and a sun that seems warmer

here: sleeping in

here: a first time in a kiddie pool, a first blanket fort, a first popsicle

here: simple moments

I love your list of heres. One of the things I miss most about the midwest is the thunderstorms. Every once in a rare while, there will be thunder, but oh, how I miss the lightning.
