tomorrow is the first day of summer, and we are soaking it up! the rain has subsided (for a week!) and the summer heat is here! we are drinking lots of sweet tea… not too sweet, though, by request, and are gearing up for some fun, yet serious ice cream making for the 4th of july.
we’ve had extended family visit; en route to north carolina where they will be transitioning to this summer (and we are ecstatic about). and i got to see a dear, dear friend from our hometown who was here for work. i loved that! there have been super soaker water fights, sleepovers, the lego movie on repeat the past few nights (which i highly recommend!… the humor is so great for both adults and kids alike), croissant making, and everything citrus. speaking of citrus, i bought some lavender to try one of the several recipes i’ve been seeing for lavender lemonades. have you tried any of these? (let me know!!)
these summer months always seem to go way too quickly, so this year i’m attempting to plan out the days a little better so that they don’t feel like a whirlwind. we’ll see how it goes.. never too late to begin (again!) enjoy the weekend! xo1 Comment
