And the patriotic pride continues in our house. Decorating with red, white and blue just adds a fresh crispness to the house after the more soft ethereal flower themes of spring. My mind is squarely in the summer fun zone. Our garden stands ready for summer produce, the ice cream maker has been brought out of storage and the winter throws have been tucked away until fall. I may or may not have gone three days without makeup. It may not be the seemingly endless summer of my youth, but it will be fun, relaxing and rejuvenating. Sounds pretty good to me.
School is almost finished for the year, shorts are once again comfortable and the sun is still bright in the sky at 7:30. Summer is back again after what felt like a decade. How sweet it feels this year in comparison to a year ago. I really want to soak it up this year beginning now…with my eyes on the patriotic spirit I love so much. Bring on the red, white and blue!
