Hey there, Hi there, Ho there!
How are you??
I am well and happy, as this may go on record as my favorite summer of all time.
We have been so many wonderful places, we have seen so many beautiful things, and we have made so many memories that I couldn’t ever possibly fit them into a blog post. Instead I made a couple of collages, and that will have to suffice for my long absence from blog land.
I was just thinking how odd it is that we Michiganders seem to cram so much living into the 3 to 4 short months that make up our summer season. It is like we have to gobble up every last moment of sunny skies and warm breezes because we know that just around the bend is the dreaded hibernation time we call winter.
I have a hunch that it’s really what makes summer so darn sweet, because it is just so darn short!
We took full advantage and haven’t wasted a moment. Since June, when last we spoke, we traveled all over our great state, camped, swam, kayaked, biked, hiked, bon-fired, site saw, wined, dined, relaxed, read, and strummed our guitars in the sunsets.
In our extended family we’ve had two graduates, and one wedding. In our own little family all of us turned one year older ( well my youngest doesn’t turn 10 until Thursday) and the hubs and I celebrated our 15th anniversary.
I can feel it winding down as the school shopping ad’s come out and the air is already a little bit chilly . I’ve even been in my sewing room the last couple of days!!! We still have some trips up our sleeves, and you can bet I will be hanging on to summer until I see the first leaf turn orange.
