Mid July and finally a sunny and hot summer weekend here in Michigan. A summer weekend filled with the little things - the small snapshots that represent summer at its best.
A good book, a cold drink and a lounge chair. The hot sun feels so good when you are sitting next to the pool.
The sparkling blue water of a pool, ready for a cool dip. A hot day and a pool just go together.
Finding wildflowers (fleabane) to bring home, on my daily walk through the woods.
A fresh summer salad, simple and delicious. Fresh peaches, strawberries and baby spinach with a light balsamic vinaigrette.
New vinca blossoms surround a tree. Lush green leaves and lovely purple, white and pink flowers in full bloom.
All these small snapshots of summer are simple things. Things that make summer special. Things we remember fondly, when the gloom of the winter months is never ending. Summer goes so fast, especially when July seems to pass in the blink of an eye.
So, I try to enjoy these fleeting moments and experience the best summer brings.
