I am from the summer breeze on the lake Up North
The smell of a campfire filling the cabin.
I am from four wheelers and snowmobiles
Action and adventure.
I am from Mom’s homemade apple pie
The savory vanilla ice cream to go with it.
I am from coffee shops with my mom
Mochas on winter days.
I am from Lynn and Chris
Telling me, “Never go halfway at anything you do, give it your all.”
I am from getting my license on my 16th birthday
My parents reminding me to, “Drive safe and put your phone away.”
I am from the nickname Samo given to me by my eighth grade best friend
Roaring laughter and smiles filling the halls at school.
I am from trips to Lapham Peak with my friends
Sunsets and polaroid cameras.
I am from three dogs
Paws hitting me in the face as I play with them.
I am from summer nights,
Trips to the Kiltie.
