lightning bugs by cricketpress

to me, summer isn’t here until the lightning bugs come out.  tonight they made their first grand appearance.  my breath was taken away when i went outside, and i caught myself laughing as i stood in our yard.  they were everywhere!  it took me back to the days when my sister and i used to catch them and use them as nightlights in our bedroom (kinda cruel?).  how beautiful it is that they come and light up our yards.  so, i was inspired to find some fellow lightning bug- lovers!  here are a few more…

  • What a wonderful reminder of memories past! My sister and I also caught them in jars – but we never thought to use them as nightlights! Brilliant! (But yeah, a little mean, haha) – another thing we would do in the summer – play in the driveway in the rain – we’d put rocks in the curb gutter and sit in the rain at the edge of the driveway, listening to our “babbling brook.” :) XO
