We spent our summer camping with family and good friends who have now become my family. Soon the snow will creep in with it’s short days and excruciatingly long nights. I will miss relaxing by the fire on a warm summer night with a cold beer in hand while everyone tells stories of their “glory days”. I will miss waking up to a hot cup of coffee and reading a book in the soothing morning sunshine. I will miss watching the kids running around with their friends, free as can be, without a care in the world. I will miss our mock happy hour (even tho we haven’t had one for a while) with the best Bloody Mary’s I’ve ever had! I will miss the “whatcha got?…. I got this…. let’s throw it together” way of cooking. I will miss sitting in the river while the kids (and dog) go wild in the water.
But most of all, I will miss my friends. They will still be around, but not every weekend like they are now. They wont be right there when I wake up, waiting to have breakfast together. They wont be right there to tell a funny story right when I need one. They wont be right there to listen to my rants. They wont be right there to be crazy with me.
Thanks all you meadow rats! I love you all and will miss you much! <3
