Summer Favorites


This is a small collection of precious summer moments that I want to remember. It was a summer full of color, creativity, and togetherness. We got our fill of outdoor adventures and indoor play, too. We tested, challenged ourselves, and grew in so many ways.

    This has been the first summer in years that I did not work full time and it was BLISS. I taught swim lessons a couple hours a week, hiked and camped and gardened. I napped and had bbq’s and watched silly movies. I am tanned dark brown, haven’t worn socks in two months and am really, really ready for it to be autumn 🙂 I’m glad you guys had such a great time, too!
