5 Things I Am DONE With From Summer:
1. Assholes. All of them. The kind who hit women. The kind who use kids as weapons. The kind who berate good moms (like for sending their kids outside to play). The kind who see someone succeeding and think "I just have to tear that shit down". The kind who forget that we are all human and we all make mistakes. Look, I can be a real a-hole too. I own that shit. I'll tell you. "I'm about to be a real asshole to you and here's why". But damn, y'all. Cut each other some slack.

1. Hot cocoa on the porch with my boys.
2. Long walks in the evening.
3. My birthday!
4. My first pot of homemade posole
5. Owls, Scarecrows and Jack-o-Lanterns
