It's officially summer. It's hot and we just finished school (mostly) for the year, so that makes it official. I'm loving the slower pace. June was a whirlwind of company and hosting and camping and fun. But to be honest, I'm ready to slow down a bit and relax. I have plans to sew and hike and work out in our much neglected garden.
On my birthday, we made a trip to the Portland Rose Garden. I try to go every June when the flowers are perfectly in bloom.
These artists make me wish I could draw. Dang it. I've come to accept it's not where my talent lies. Let's just be honest!
One of my favorite birthday gifts was this act of service from my father-in-law. He put up the bead board I've been planning for the kitchen. Thanks, Gramps!
I know this is random, but I had to share these flowers from the garden. The top photo is a flower my neighbor gave me from his garden last year. They are so vibrant and amazing. The second pic is of the limelight hydrangeas my hubby got for my birthday our first year in our new home. So, I guess this isn't random. It's all about flowers and birthday gifts!
I hope you guys are enjoying some sun and good times with family and friends. Ahh, summer. Please, stay a while. We've missed you!
