Hail Summer, All

Hail summer, hail bright Julys
Hail halos in our hair
And night skies with fireflies

Hail heat in our bones
Hearts in our hands
And heroes in our homes

Hail red, white, blue
Hail days gone by
And the future, too

Hail holding on
And holding out
For daybreak’s dawn

Hail heaven’s hopes
Dreams held close
And freedom, still, and always.

Happy 4th, Darlings.

    I loved reading chasing slow by erin! Some other books I recently finished are : love warrior by glennon doyle melton, rising strong by brene brown, and I’m in the middle of cold tangerines by shauna neiquest <3
