It was because of love.
And this guy. Plus three other smaller ones.
I stayed in the bed, bones drinking up the lazy. Til french toast and fried potatoes and ham were ready. Til the conversation around the breakfast table pulled me there.
Then more lazy. Luscious lazy morn. Until we tied on the hiking shoes and grabbed the cooler with the sliced gouda and apples and cookies.
Drove up over the mountaintop to a gravel road, to a trailhead. Then down.
Way down to this.
In droplets of rain.
Rain? It's been so long!
Everything about that day was just so right.
Thank you, my loves, for making it so special!
