‘s’ is for Scrabble… which I love.
‘s’ is for Sebeck… the best maiden name ever. (Say: SEE beck) I genetically belong to a motley crew of Bohemians known far and wide for throwing great parties, serving in every major war, and having strict ethics concerning apple chucking.
‘s’ is for sass… which my child has in abundance. I swear, lately it seems like this kid has found another gear. I cannot keep up with her. I spend a lot of my day shrugging. (Ry’s hat says ‘Dan’s Auto Care,’ which is her GranPap Sebeck’s day job.)
‘s’ is for straight… as in face, which I am very good at keeping. I’m a good liar, and I have used this talent for both good and evil. Now that I’m all grown up, it’s almost always used for humor’s sake. Almost.
‘s’ is for sewing… which I have jumped back into after a ridiculous hiatus. Becky, I swear I haven’t forgotten you or sweet Ellen. Please see above ‘s is for sass’. But, I’m back. Here: Ry’s school jumper WITH FACING, People. With. Facing. (That’s the green polka dots on the inside.) Because I can be a rock star when I wanna be.
‘s’ is for Stephanie… a bff as long as Janna (they come from the same hometown), my maid of honor, my friend who sings Christmas carols all blasted year long, LoLo’s sister, my European travel buddy, and my host in S-is-for-Spain. She’s as good as they come. Also, her son is going to marry Rylie.
‘s is for simple… our motto here at TexasNorth. Simple does not imply easy. In fact, nowadays simple often requires a bit more effort than the advances of the day offer us. Or, it requires saying ‘no’- which is harrrd. Or, it requires manual labor. Or it requires doing without. Or, it requires extra time. Or, it requires space. Or, it requires less. But, we are fans of simple.
And, I think y’all are super.
