Letter to Summer (Break)

Dear Summer,

I have such fond memories of you when I was growing up. Three months free to do whatever I wanted before school started up again. So many days were spent swimming at the pool or Burraston ponds, hiking around the mountains in my backyard, or just hanging out with friends.

Oh, how I’ve missed you these last six years! Working 40+ hours a week and spending all my time indoors, not even being able to enjoy you! Well, Summer, since this is the first time in a long time that I get to be with you, I intend to make the best of it. I’m planning to fill the time with trips (Mexico City, Canada, Utah), lots of hikes, lots of house guests, photography classes, and private Spanish lessons.

Summer, I realize my time with you is short. I also realize what is waiting for me on the other end of you (Intro to Human Rights, International Communications, and Strategic Management - Communication Campaigns along with more Spanish lessons), but I know that I will most likely only get to enjoy you twice before I return to work, so I promise not to take you for granted.

I am so close to joining you, Summer. I only have a short Spanish interview and a take-home final left to finish up. And’s just you and me for the next 15 weeks!

Love Always,

Meet Ellie

This is Ellie. She is coming to visit in July. I am excited to meet her and have a feeling that I might have to talk her into staying here to live with me. She is seriously the cutest dog I have ever seen.

Ellie, I can't wait for you to visit!

(Oh yeah, and it will be nice to see Danette again, too :))
