And the living is easy.

Around this time last year, I was finishing up my internship in the city, planning a wedding and packing for Italy.

This year I'm finishing up my last semester of college, planning for graduation and other friends' summer weddings, and packing up our first apartment to move back into the city. Ah, change. You always throw me for a loop.

But today I'm mostly anticipating the joys of summer...

The lemonade that goes down like an antidepressant and gives you the clear sense that you just drank something impossibly pink. Toes wiggling in the sand as you throw your head back to embrace sunshine that can only be described as divinely inspired. Books wrinkled along the edges where page has met pool water. Country music blasting as you sing along like you just don't care, though surely the neighbors do. Parades through town that once embarrassed you well into the school year, but now only fill you with nostalgia.

We will be friends again very soon, dear one. For three blissful weeks between graduation and the internship of my dreams, I will worry of nothing more than which novel I will devour, how long I will sit in the sun and the amount of fruit that I can eat in one sitting.
