Snapshot:36

little me planting with my cousin / early 1980s

This snapshot is tattered and faded but it's still one of my favorites from my childhood because it's what I think a good summer looks like; dirty knees, hair all over the place, and busy! Now that this summer is officially over I've been reviewing our photos and I'm pleased to say that Little Smith did get his share of dirt this year. We didn't go on the road trip we'd hoped for, but it was my favorite summer yet, simple and perfect.

  3. You can tell it's you in that picture just by the thick, gorgeous hair! I agree... 'dirt on the knees, messy hair and busy hands' is the perfect definition of summer. Glad you enjoyed yours. xo.

    1. Thanks Namcy, it was just a family vegetable garden, although it was gigantic and practically farm-sized :)
