Summer breeze...summer ease.
Summer is such a special time. Filled with scrumptious foods, plenty of time in the sun, and lazy days to catch up on whatever your heart desires.
You know, the easy stuff.
This summer has been an absolute treasure. I have been able to spend it with the loves of my life and I wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world.
It has been filled with plenty of mid-morning and afternoon naps...
Plenty of smiles, playtime, and laughter...
laughing at daddy
playing with grandpa Porter's old toy phone
Who knew blankets could be so funny?
growing green things in the garden...
cucumber in our garden
time to craft and make homemade gifts...
hand-sewn napkins and crafted napkin rings for the future Mr. and Mrs. Winters
Mommy/daughter headbands for the Grigor girls
and just overall one of a kind, first, and happy memories.

I don't want it to end.
Soon, the ease of summer will be replaced with the hubbub of the beginning of school and all it entails. But, just for now--I will continue to soak up every minute of it and cherish these long, hot summer days and everything they bring with them.
The days are long for a reason this time of year. And, I now know why more than ever.
