A letter

Dear August,

You've been good to me. In fact, I think this is the first month that has actually felt like Summer. Sure I was in California for 2 plus weeks in July, but can you say COLDEST SUMMER ON RECORD? That's what the newspaper said at least . . .

So I just want to take a moment and thank you. Thank you for showing me why I love Provo. Thank you for those seemingly endless nights where it was warm past midnight. Thank you for letting a friend come and for helping my mind grow. Thanks for letting us find out early that our baby is going to be a girl. I've basically been on a high for weeks. Thank you for that really long (and hot, I might add) bike ride last Saturday with my sweetie (both of them). I won't be able to ride too much longer (doctor's orders) and I needed to feel my body in the wind like I did.

Thanks for letting me be productive, even though it felt lazy to lay in bed until 11 in front of my computer. I have two books ready to send off and I can't wait to smell their new pages (laptop screens just don't provide the same pleasure). Thank you for helping me sleep in a little bit since I'm up much of the night making so many trips to the bathroom that my knuckles are chapped from washing so much.

Most of all thanks for ending soon. I'm excited to face this semester head on and you need to get out of the way first.

With much appreciation,

I love August. Wish they wouldn't start school so soon and end it prematurely!

Um, are you writing a book? I picked that up in there somewhere.

Ps, I think you're going to be an amazing mother. Congratulations!

Y'all are in a singles ward? That is awesome. Also congrats on the up coming baby. Donna is having her baby here in about 5-6 weeks y she looks adorable, being pregnant y all. I really hope you two are happy. I saw your dad earlier this summer at Ernie's. I didn't say hi, but I did think, I know that man, ha.
Hope all is well
