Swimming Hole


“In the summer, the days were long, stretching into each other. Out of school, everything was on pause and yet happening at the same time, this collection of weeks when anything was possible.”

―Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me:
Twelve Lords A – Leaping
Eleven Ladies Dancing
Ten pipers piping
Nine drummers drumming
Eight maids A – milking
Seven swans A-swimming
Six geese A-Laying
Five Golden Rings
Four Calling Birds
Three French Hens
Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree.
