This weekend reminded me that summer is finally and truly here. My summer wardrobe basically consists of shorts, shorts, dresses, bathing suits, and did I mention shorts? We've been enjoying daily  sunsets on the beach, fresh fruit popsicles, smoothies, and coconut gelato. Trips to the farmer's market, cooking, brunching, sunbathing, and indulging in some fun reading are all on the agenda until my upcoming summer adventures. Ahh summer, I'm so glad to see you again!


Memorial Mention

This photo doesn't necessarily have a whole lot to do with the reason we celebrate Memorial Day; however, the title that I won from that pageant, Miss Liberty, is representative of a concept for which we are all so grateful for: Liberty, which is better known to us as freedom. While many of us will celebrate this day with barbecues, family, beach days and boating, the true reason for our holiday is because of a sacrifice that some brave souls were willing to make. I am beyond grateful for the many men and women willing to put their life on the line for my freedom, knowing that they may never see their families and friends ever again. If that isn't selfless, brave and heroic, I don't know what is. I hope that at least once during your celebrations you'll give thought and thanks to those who were willing to give it all up so you can experience that liberty, that freedom you and I enjoy today. 

Happy Memorial Day. 
We Salute you. 


Weekend Wanderings

I don't know about you, but I thought this week went by fast! It's rather hard to believe it's Friday already, but I am oh so glad to see the weekend's arrival..especially since it's bringing some time to read, relax and see friends! Summer is truly upon us, and so I plan to soak up a bit of sunshine throughout the weekend. Ahh such bliss! Hope you're able to kick back, relax and enjoy the time with family and friends

Have a great weekend!

Penny For Your Thoughts

A penny for your thoughts..Ok, so not really, but I would like to know what you think of my blog by taking a quick 4- question survey. It is so helpful to me to know what my readers are enjoying, and what would be fun to add or bring back (Teatime Thursday, anyone?) Everything is anonymous, so just tell it like it is. Thank you so so much; I truly appreciate it :)

Kahlil Gibran once said, "In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans." 
There's something so soothing and mysterious about the ocean; the colors and textures beautifully melding sea and sand to create a consistent yet watery chaos. It's no wonder that we find ourselves there to think, dream and play. 

Thinking about summertime's swift arrival has my mind out to sea..daydreams of sunshine, crystal blue water, starfish, seashells, and not a care in the world. My wardrobe has suddenly found itself in shades of sea, adorned in nautical and ocean-inspired motifs. 

Perhaps its the frequent trips to the shoreline to catch the sun's brilliant departure as it leaves the world in a blaze of color, or maybe the sudden spike in temperatures that has me thinking about making everyday a beach day...regardless, I'm planning on being near the water as. much. as. possible. this summer. Mermaids, I just might come join you.
