what i'm looking forward to this summer

early morning sunlight,

long summer evenings,

and the dawn that always shows up too soon.


weekends of plans that pass quickly,

weekends without plans that trickle by, 

and watching the sun sink behind the city's rooftops.


days reading books,

nights watching movies,

and wandering streets with nowhere to go.


trying new places,

revisiting old favorites.

and spontaneous weeknights that bleed into weekends. 


decisions that are both good and bad,

decisions that end as stories only growing better with time,

and decisions that turn into memories bright as the pictures they're captured in.
