CitySonnet. Goodbye August: August 31, 2019

I’ll miss summer afternoons and evenings the most. There’s something lovely about the days staying light till late evening: the warmth, the afternoon glow, and spontaneous strolls. This is our first summer since Ellis’ birth that we’ve had many playdates and outings. Sure we’re still overly vigilant about germs, but she is

When I became a new mom, someone told me to enjoy summers with your kids, because time passes quickly. Parents get to spend about 18 summers with kids before they go to college or embark on other adventures.

It’s hard to savor this time when you’re exhausted from raising kids, yet I understand how I’ll miss being in this season of life with them. The best is that they still love to cuddle, take bunch of silly selfies with you, and tag along everywhere you go.

Summertime is always the best of what might be.

Writing and daydreaming have always been two of my favorite things to do. I've been an avid journal writer since junior high school. It was a way for me to survive the complex world of being a Korean-American female straddling two cultures. Journal writing continued through graduate school, but that luxury is now replaced with multitasking to raise and homeschool two young kids. As the self-proclaimed domestic C.E.O. of our home, personal reflection occurs mostly in my subconscious dreams, during solo grocery shopping runs, or when my husband Chris takes the kids to Costco for an afternoon trip.

    1. They are growing so fast. Hard to believe how time is passing so quickly. Trying to savor the time as much as I can. I need God to give me more enery or more wisdom to do less and prioritize! Lol.
      Have a great Sunday and always love your sweet comments.
