It was early spring when she let down her hair, and slipped out the back door. She really couldn’t wait to get outside. She did need a jacket, but giggled to herself when she had an idea. She couldn’t help it, but she took off her shoes and socks (just for a minute) and felt the cool, wet grass slide between her toes. And she saw clover!
He wondered where she’d gone, and when he looked out of their bedroom window, he saw her. She was in her bare feet – again! He opened the window, and yelled, “What are you doing??” She gave him a huge smile, and a wink, and said, “Why don’t you come down here to find out?” He was out the door in a flash, without any shoes and socks. He took her hand, and they both laughed.
They breathed it all in. She closed her eyes, and he knew instantly what she was dreaming about. He asked, “Are you dreaming about running through the fields again?” It took her a minute, but she softly said, “H’mm…….yes……you and I running through the fields……at the lavender farm…..”
