First Day of Summer

Hot summer day...
Three of the most beautiful words in the English language, methinks.
The girls don't necessarily agree to the fullest extent that I do.

 Tis the season for...
:: Dirty, grass-stained barefeet.
:: For early morning games of Cribbage.
:: For that second cup of coffee.
:: For long bike rides.
:: For teaching the boys about the nectar in purple clover.
:: For watching our garden grow.
:: And for weeding.
:: For slip 'n slides.
:: For sunkissed skin.
:: And for slowing....

"It's the joy of the small that makes life large." ~ Ann Voskamp.

Sometimes it's easier to see in the summer...

I confess - Kev has now beaten me five times in a row. 

 And it most definitely is the season for smoothies at lunch.

Our favorite:
~Tons of ice.
~ 3 bananas
~ Scoop of peanut butter
~ Scoop of protein - chocolate is our fave.
~ Some yogurt or Silken Tofu
~ Your fave flave of milk - regular, almond, silk, or whatever.

Blend, blend, blend.
And then savor the flavor, Baby.
A morning gift from my sweet Kaden.
Yes.  Tis the season for many summer loves.
Happy FIRST day!
And may we have many more...

To my dearest,

I'm so happy you are enjoying this weather. Your words make me want to enjoy it, but alas I can not. I much prefer a crisp fall day to one of these "3 H" days" (hazy, hot and humid). So I'm hiding inside my a/c powered home (I dislike a/c as well, but not as much as I dislike heat so it wins on these types of days) praying my fondant cake decorations dry and wishing we were closer so we could "chill" together. I guess our schedules both got a bit busy to fit camp in this June, but hopefully we can get it in at some point this summer or at least a get together. Lovin your summer inspiring words...trying to find those things to be thankful for...even if I wish it were October. Love ya!

P.S. Hope you don't mind that I used your very favorite quote from Anne on my blog. But it seemed to fit so nicely. :) Hugs!
