there’s only one

When I was in high school there was a kind of cheesy promotional video for football featuring a bunch of different players saying, “there’s only one” with dramatic music in the background. (Only one football team like ours).

Well, I won’t comment further on the video (or subsequent ones) but here are a few “only ones” of the summer:

Only one thing like fresh fruit. Particularly peaches and plums. And watermelons and mangoes. Ahhh, I am in love!

Only one thing quite like summer vegetables straight from the garden, little beads of sweat forming as they go from their little dirt home to the oven to my stomach.

Only one time of year when weddings are quite so rampant.

Only one thing quite like family. Although with my oldest sister and her Nick not here it kind of feels like a missing appendage.
