Summertime and the Livin's Easy....


Today marked the first really warm day of the year and nothing but a picnic in the backyard could make it feel more welcome (and convince it to stay for a while).


So as our eyes and imaginations turn to summer, let us welcome:



  • chasing butterflies and fireflies

  • enjoying a cool nap after a hot day at the park

  • listening for the ice cream truck
  • smelling that salty shore air

  • sitting on your deck without any care of what the house looks like inside

  • running through sprinklers

  • watering the plants

  • getting absolutely, unapologetically dirty

  • talking to neighbors who've been hibernating all year

  • watching the fireworks

  • tasting water ice and ice cream

  • late day sunshine

  • barbecues
  • picking peaches and blueberries


And knowing that there is nothing better than rediscovering the joys of warm weather through the eyes of our children.

Please let me know if I forgot anything through the Comment section...I know the list should be longer!
