I wish I was starting this post with some major announcement that my path in life had been found and verified, and I was in the process of embarking on some great adventure… but alas, just more waiting. Waiting for everything to change.
However, we did get three days at my parents, with amazing home cooked meals we didn’t have to plan, and my little sister and I celebrated our birthdays together again, like we always did as kids. The cake? Disney Princess. We do not believe in getting too old to celebrate in tiaras either. In fact, not much has changed in 15 years… We’ve just upgraded the lemonade.
Yup, that is what we did on Saturday afternoon. We went to lunch, we went to the local ice cream parlor, and then we came back and pulled out the bucket of sidewalk chalk my mom recently discovered when she was cleaning out the garage. She was going to give it to the neighbor kids… It was a good thing she didn’t. She would have missed out on our very impressive artwork.
“Of course your castle is all pretty and perfect, and mine is huge, pink and crazy with an alligator and a waterside,” my sister complained as we sipped our drinks and documented our undertaking with instagram. Some things never change.
But truthfully a lot has changed… and in another 15 years,even more will have changed. I can’t even imagine what our lives will look like then. And yet, I can still see us on the driveway playing with sidewalk chalk. Somehow, that’s incredibly comforting right now.
