Summer of 2008 has had it unofficial end. And I have had a crazy summer. That is the way I like it. It started with a brand new job, which I now know was a great career move. I work with a group of great people. I've done lots of traveling. Which I feel so blessed to be able to do. I've been to Florida-twice. To Rhode Island and New Mexico. And I have a fall trip planned to Chicago. I have seen different parts of my past, at my 10 year High School Reunion, and a more recent past, my ex. I've done more swimming this year since my first summer here-which I love. I have gained a stronger friendship in a friend I never thought I would be close to, again. I went to baby shower, and a wedding. I had my parents here for a Rockies game. I experienced yet another birth into this world, as well as another tragedy of death for my family. The beginning of a bunch of babies turning 1 has started, and will continue for what seems like forever! I experienced history with the DNC and new memories with wonderful friends. I worked hard at the gym and focusing on being healthy, and put in some labor into a new bathroom. The summer was filled with a lot of firsts, and I hope that the firsts keep coming. I enjoy and feel so blessed with all the new experiences coming into my life. I am open and looking forward to what the rest of the year will bring.
Every summer I have a summer song. And well I don't really have one this summer. I've been thinking of what could be my summer song for awhile now. And well, no new dance song comes to mind. But one of my new favorite songs is "Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis. It is a beautiful song, but not a song I would classify as a summer song. But one of my favorite memories of this summer has to do with that song. On my second trip to Florida this summer, my friend Tina, her two boys(that I've known since they were born) Max, and Jakob were driving home one day. And "Bleeding Love" came on the radio. Well all 4 of us starting singing along with this song at the top of our lungs. We were really screaming this song, not really singing. Well at the end of this song it has 2 very long notes of "and IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII keep bleeding, I keep keep bleeding..." well in the "I...." we all screamed as loud as we could. It was one of the moments where I wished so much I could take an aerial picture of that moment. The 4 of us, having the time of our lives. It was a beautiful moment, and now every single time I hear that song, I can't help but life and remember that moment with Tina and her boys, Max and Jakob, and laugh out loud.
