I need the smell of summer, I need its noises in my ear.

Who else is starting to feel those winter blues and blahs? The past week has just been darn right cold. And when we got all excited we would at least get some snow out of the cold (See: Grownup Snow Days) it brought half an inch. Ugh.

I’m ready for the sun.

I’m ready to sweat.

I’m ready to have my happy hour by the pool.

I’m ready to go on a summer vacation.

Can I get an amen?

Whatever the weather is where you are, let’s take a little mental vacation together to the good ol’ days of summer …












Ahhh, don’t you feel at least a little bit better now? I know I’m ready for a Pina Colada.

fall weather + good reads

Day 2 of the 30-day challenge: Today I’m thankful for B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L weather. J’adore!

I’m also thankful for good reads. The first of which my mother told me repeatedly to read, but I kept putting it off because in all honesty I thought it sounded kind of hokey. When I finally started it, I flew through it in 4 days – The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.

Oh my goodness this is a must-read. The tale is a beautiful portrait of an orphan’s life and how flowers and the language behind them drove her well-being and ultimate happiness.Who even knew flowers had meanings?? I laughed, I cried, I wanted to read it again.

My current read is Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple. Though I’m only 50 pages in, it’s already a fun, easy read about a quirky mother and her family.

Now I’m off to end my Monday with the two things I’m thankful for today – sitting on our porch, book in hand.
