It’s funny how one brand new sparkly moment triggers a domino effect of memories. There has been a heart shaped sparkler floating around the house recently and the other morning in order to just get rid of it, we decided to light it as a ‘Happy Two’ for Tabitha (this is what she calls candles and how she sings Happy Birthday!).
As soon as the sparks started crackling, I was reminded of a song. A song that was the soundtrack to my Summer back in 2004. That was nine years ago. And I still know all the words.
Today, I baked cookies and had this song on repeat and it just happened that the length of the song was the same length of time the cookies needed in the oven. Yet another small memory added to the list.
it’s just a seasonal thing
unlike you my perennial darling
…no you can’t ignore the sparks
you can’t ignore the sparks
