Any time that I got to spend on the farm with my grandparents or my cousin, who I share birthdays with and who was my best friend.
  1. Here is us, sharing a birthday.
  2. (still make this face in pictures tbh)
  3. At the Church up the road.
  4. That same Church.
  5. I know older generations shit all over the kids of today, criticizing them for having technology as play things.
  6. And I know that's unfair because they didn't ask for it.
  7. It was just given to them. A birthright.
  8. But fuck. I don't envy them at all.
  9. I was the luckiest kid in the whole god damn world.
  10. Running through trees with flowers clutched tight in my fists.
  11. Picking strawberries and complaining about how hot it was outside, while my grandma told me "if you quit complaining and picked faster you wouldn't have to BE outside."
  12. I made friends with the horses at the next farm over.
  13. And had peaches so sweet and sticky that I was licking juice off my fingers for hours.
  14. I can't even remember some of the best moments. Can't put the other half into words.
  15. I hope it's the same for all of you.
