One of the best things about summer is just sitting back and taking in all of the beauty. Well, maybe not sitting back but definitely taking in all of the amazing sights! I often find myself snapping pictures of everything around me, even food. Seeing all that is around me is such a blessing. Did I mention how much I LOVE summer?!
Looking at this, can’t you just taste the juicy-ness!? The fresh fruit available is one of the best parts of summer!!
It’s so hard to describe the moment my son hit his first home-run. I am so thankful I was there to see it all happen.
Summer means weddings, right?! I remember how excited my daughter was to be a flower girl. She literally practiced for weeks before. Thank goodness for silk flower petals! Seeing her walk down the aisle after all the hard work she put in was something I will never forget!
Seeing a sunset over Lake Michigan is something that is almost too beautiful to describe. I love spending long summer days along the lake shore with my family.
Speaking of spending family time together, did you know that Taste of Chicago is going on right now through July 15th!
