five minutes, no edits, happy friday!
linking up with lisa jo and her 5 minute friday fun. check out the rest of the writers here!
a freshman in every way, i embraced everything.
hindsight was not on the agenda.
looking back on five years ago, i see through mixed emotions.
i miss her long hair, but laugh at the hundred-dollar highlights.
i see me in her eyes, but note changes in the face.
i can hear her friends laughing, exploring her hometown wal-mart, stopping for a photoshoot in arts & crafts, then immediately rushing home to change their facebook photos to matching garden scenes.
her laugh rings higher and louder than all the rest.
i still break out that coat when days can’t decide on a season, and i can’t decide how i feel about her.
i hope she’s happy with where we’ve ended up, a different kind of garden, new things blooming alongside the plastic bouquet that now sits at the threshold of the next 5 years.
i might break out that loud laugh today, just for her.
