Sometimes a happy accident leads to something cool. Like when you’re using your iPhone’s camera to put on lipstick (it makes for a handy “mirror” when you don’t have one) before your meeting and you set it down on the counter and what you see makes you look up. “Cool photo op,” I thought. #StuffYouMissIfYouDontLookUp
Today, I got to relive the summers of my youth, if only for a little while. I had about 1/2 hr before my spinning class started at the Y this afternoon, so I decided to sit by the pool and catch a few rays. When I closed my eyes, it took me right back to my teens. My mom ran a country club while I was growing up and we spent our entire summer by the pool each year. She could keep an eye on us and it kept us busy. Swim team in the mornings and playing with our friends until dusk. Today reminded me of those days. The buzz of all of the kids “patiently” waiting for adult swim to be over. The sun. A breeze. And this week’s current top hits on the radio, drifting in and out of the background. That’s what summer means to me.
