When I first saw The DigiChick Designers collab kit, the color palette reminded me of early summer morning sunrises even before I read the name of the kit, which is Summer Morning.
My grandfather, whom we called Popa, was a morning lark and he loved to fish out at the lake, arriving there before the sun rose. He didn’t have a boat, he simply stood on the shore and cast his fishing line into the water, patiently waiting for fish to take the bait. My favorite summer memories are of spending the night with my grandparents. The next morning we would wake up very early, eat a hearty breakfast of scrambled eggs and juice, and then head out to a local lake with Popa just before sunrise to go fishing. Those mornings were so peaceful and serene, and every time I witness a sunrise I am reminded of that precious time spent with my Popa.
