So, today, this block has two meanings to me. I've been thinking a lot about summertime and I am wishing it would just come quicker than normal. I'm so over a lot of what has been going on this year, and I am really ready to move on. Summer time always has me feeling free, relaxed, and reenergized. One thing I always enjoy about summer time is the fruits that come with it! My absolute favorite fruit in this world is a pineapple. To me, nothing beats a really ripe, juicy, delicious pineapple. The best pineapple I ever had was actually in Hawaii, at the Dole plantation. I find it funny that they don't even use the Hawaii Dole plantation anymore except for a tourist attraction, though.
This leads me into my step-mother, Sue. Sue brought us to Hawaii one summer to show us around. She lived in Hawaii for years, and she always talks about the island and how happy it made her living there. She actually hates pineapples, which I also find somewhat amusing.
Sue is such a kind soul. I'm not sure I have ever seen her angry or mad at anyone. She is always very kind and generous.
My parents divorced when I was younger, I was 15 at the time. A lot of people would usually be pretty upset about their parents splitting, but it actually didn't bother me much. At the time, I needed time away from my mom, so that our relationship could heal and become great, like it is today. I lived with my dad, and eventually he met Sue.
I always liked Sue from the very get go. I always advocated for him and her to be together. I am so glad they did. She makes my dad really happy, and I can see it when I watch them interact. They were meant for each other.
I am so happy you became part of my life, Sue! Love you!
