I'm through with how are you? Have started asking this instead: what's on your heart? That's when faces light up, tears fall, words tumble out and things get really real, just the way I like them. This is a great question to ask yourself as well. Even if an answer doesn't materialize on the spot, an unspoken grace will linger.
June is a flower girl carrying a single peony shyly down the aisle. It is a beautiful bride with sneakers under her flowy gown and a marching band showing up at the reception, booming out the college fight song. It's is a strawberry dropped in a flute of champagne, toasts under the stars and happy tears. It's saying goodbyes, saying hellos and saying let's remember this forever. June is a deep breath, a soft rain, a nest of baby bluebirds. It's al fresco and en plein air, an impressionist painting, a hummingbird cake. June is a time to taste, sip, savor. To fill up on lovely.
