It's Summer!!

Are you ready for the summer??

I hope so because it’s here! I’m not a fan of the heat but I must admit there is something so relaxing about the summer months. The warm weather seems to make things move a little slower, makes us undo a button or two and gives us the freedom of sitting back a little more to watch the world go by.

I don’t know about you but summer often gives me a nostalgic feeling. Remembering good times with family and friends and the rituals that made this time of year so special. Here was the perfect day from my summers past…..

First, lets load up the beach bag......

with a sunhat....

and a great book....

jump in Dad's old Chevy......

and enjoy some time on the beach

(truth be told I always wore a swimsuit, lol).....


Maybe look for some seashells.....

come home and enjoy some watermelon.....


and smell the lovely hydrangeas.


Wishing you all a happy summer filled with your own lovely memories!

And make some new ones, why don't ya??

Life is good!

Chaunce, another fabby post theme. Thanks so much for featuring my bag with all these lovely items. It's like a Rebus Tale. Cool. And I need cool today. Heat index 101* already today.
