self portrait: had I realized that this was the prompt a few days ago, I probably wouldn’t have done a selfy for ‘imperfect’. Oh well… this is me exhausted after a 12 hour car ride to St Louis.
busy: 4 year old nephew is constantly in motion, playing with toys, talking non-stop, and singing about bars of soap (that story is for another day)
best part of your day: we arrived in Kansas City and the family convened for dinner upon our arrival as always. It’s chaos but I love it. A chance to sit down for a visit with Pappaw is such a blessing.
fun: 4th of July traditions… opening ceremonies, the national anthem, a picnic, catching up with old friends & family and of course the annual Bill Couser Memorial Horseshoe Tournament. I played for the first time this year with cousin Michelle as my partner. It was miserably hot but we had a good time even though we lost both our games. Gotta start practicing for next year…
on the floor: Addi was kind enough to oblige me with a silly face and then chose her filter for this shot. She’s such a nut and has the most adorable giggle on the face of this planet.
chair: settled in after happy hour at the hodie (this is what the kids call the hotel). Time to chill.
