Although I've been less active in publishing posts on my blog the last few weeks, I have been writing here and there in draft form, keeping a gratitude journal, and thinking a lot about starting the memoir that I dream of one day publishing.
On this lovely summer Monday I'm saying hello to some summer favorites and creating my summer fun list — a to-do list of things our family hopes to do this summer.
hello long summer days and lovely summer evenings.
We went down to Blue Point Dock after dinner and ate frozen yogurt. It was windy, but so lovely. We are so lucky to live a short walk away from this. This girl loves the beach just like her mommy!
hello easy summer outfits. I've never been a shorts a t-shirt kind of person (I'd always preferred skirts and dresses) until this year. I love how simple it is.
hello longer hair that I can pull back and pin up and off my face. It's been so, so long since I've had long hair and I'm loving how easy it is for me, especially this time of year.
hello part-time work hours. I am so thankful that I work part-time in the summer. It feels great to have three days off to enjoy a long weekend every week and come home early during the week. We will be at the beach this Friday!
hello fruit and veggies. This time of year we always have blueberries, strawberries and watermelon in the fridge. Molly loves watermelon! We planted our garden a bit later than normal, but we are seeing lots of growth and can't wait to start picking our fresh veggies and making great meals to enjoy on our back deck. Do you eat dinner outside this time of year?
hell turkey burgers and salad for dinner. I enjoy my turkey burger with avocado. My husband likes his with Frank's hot sauce. He really does put it on everything!
hello creating our summer fun list of things we want to do this summer together. What's on your list?
