Sometimes the girls just gotta get out. So Sadie, Berkeley and I did just that. We packed up a blanket, some water for Berkeley, some milk for Sadie and a camera for Mom and we were off.
The weather hasn’t completely switched gears into Spring time yet. We still have spurts of winter and of summer. And on a very hot spurt of summer day, Uncle Jared and Sadie enjoyed a day in the grass.
I’ve never carved my name into a tree before, I have however, printed my initials into wet cement somewhere on 5th street in Santa Monica. Anytime I’ve ever walked down that block since I’ve been imprinted into its history, it makes me laugh. I almost half want to grab the closest stranger and point it out to them and say, “hey, look, this is me in this cement!”
Well, now Sadie can forever have that same silly feeling. Jared took the liberty of carving her initials into a tree in the middle of a park in the middle of downtown LA.
It was a hot sunny day in the grass that has been imprinted into forever. And for that, I am grateful.
