|Summer's bounty, from my Dad's garden in Mississippi.|
|Purple hull peas and beautiful fresh corn. YUMMY!|
|Our first sunflower this season, paired with an old blue jar. Timeless summer beauty.|
Lately we have just been staying inside as much as possible, except for early morning and late evening! Thankfully we did get some much-needed rain last week. It appears the afternoon showers weather pattern has also arrived. That does help with the heat!
Kids have been swimming rather often.
I have been enjoying the light the water reflects into the kitchen in the mornings.
Here's the pool gate my hubby built--cutest gate ever, as far as I'm concerned(cutest pool guy ever, too!)!
Celebrating Flag Day today. My kids just LOVE to wake up on June 14! :)
|You're a grand old flag. . . .and forever in peace may you wave!|
Baking lemon pound cake. Smells heavenly. Inspired by the "Lemon Cupcake" scented candle my sis-in-law sent me last week.(Thank you, Katy, even if it DOES make me hungry!)
Surprised by our first water lily bloom of the year--pale, pale pink...
Had a fun day shopping with my bestie yesterday--found this sweet OLD paper towel holder--JUST LIKE my Mawmaw's kitchen!!!!!!! I was kind of excited. :)(It's marked Yugoslavia on the back, how funny!)
Glad to have a new haircut. Karla is back to work at Salon Dolce, and her little guy is coming home from St. Jude soon. We are rejoicing with them!
My two middle girls are coming home from their weekend in Mississippi today. We have missed the giggly hugs and helpfulness. It's been quite quiet!
Soooo many blessings to count. . .
What's a summer day look like for you?
