Summer. It’s a season that brings childhood memories back like no other.
The summers laid out ahead of us, creeping along.
Boredom struck us and we began creating ways to entertain ourselves. Sleeping late.
Dreading the chores left on the refrigerator.
Summer smells of sweet cut grass and fresh laundry on the line.
Looking for the bird singing and finding them high above your head on a bare limb, and the woods swaying to the song of the crickets.
Catching glimpses of nature.

Anticipation of picking dinner from the garden, fresh fruit stands selling peaches. Daydreaming and afternoon naps in the sunshine.
Homemade ice-cream. Watermelons with salt. Laying in the grass. Finding four leaf clovers and catching lighting bugs. School and organized activities pinch off more every year from my kids, but I hope I give them the chance to get bored, be creative and take in the spirit of summer like I did. I love the start of summer. The potential in the warm breezes.
I hope your summer is warm and happy, relaxing and sweet.
Find time to look around and see the beauties of summer.
