mother’s day

Happy mother’s day to all you wonderful moms out there 🙂


This day has been  bittersweet for me for the last 7 years … a special message to my mom …
I miss you and I wish I could hear your voice and chat with you especially today… even though I talk to you all the time … I wish I could hear you answer me.

summer is in the air :)

Can you feel it ???


Summer is soooo close I can taste it !


and I am bursting with excitement!!!


I love summer  … spring is ok, but summer is in a field all of it’s own…


The long days, late nights, amazing sunsets…


The crazy thunder showers that blow in as quickly as they blow out …


The heat that goes right to your head and makes you giddy and want to take that afternoon nap…


The frozen treats, splash days, pool days, bike rides, flying kites, chalk fun, bubble fun,


sandal wearing, short wearing …


and all those amazing foods grown locally … I mean can it get any better then that ???


Are you a summer person? What do you do in the summertime?


I am grooving to this song lately


the dog days of summer



May summer be hot and sunny with a few thunder showers to help appreciate the sunshine even more 😉
