Enjoy Project | Children's Books + Front Royal
"We'll end up hand in hand, somewhere down on the sand, just me and you."
"We'll drive until the city lights, dissolve into a country sky, just me and you."
For Memorial Saturday we drove over to the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Skyline Drive starts in Front Royal, Virginia at the Shenandoah National Park. Caleb smelled good. He wore his new H&M shirt.
The roads were winding. The trees were green. Me and you.
Oh, it was "almost Heaven." We love "West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River." "Life is old there, older than the trees!" Older than you and me.
We have many nicknames. I call him Slim Jim, Cowboy, Corn Cob, Short Stack, Mister Mister, Cockatoo, Morrison, Lone Ranger, Stallion (and sometimes Mare... but I'm just teasing.) He calls me Little, Silly Woman, Rose of Sharon (also teasing), Red Robin, Sweet Elizabeth Jane, Baby Doll, You.
Sometimes I call him Country Roads. Sometimes he calls me Mountain Mama. We don't have a lot of money. And I'm afraid of mice.
