I Don't Need Hallmark

Fri, 07/17/2015 - 20:46 -- CallieB

From Rollercoasters and water Rapids,

To Picnicking at the drive in,

From spending time with my family,

To meeting Natalie at that hipster coffee joint,

Waking up on Sunday mornings to breakfast with Mom

Before church,

From pool side ukulele practice,

To sore fingers and slight sunburn,

From candlelight reading,

To nap time with my favorite pup,

From meeting people who have traveled,

To traveling myself,

Sleeping in on Saturday,

Because I went to that Football game,

I don’t need riches to be happy,

Or hallmark moments to be awesome.
