summer love

I think the reason for my quiet blog is because we've been doing so much this summer. And when we're not doing, I'm busy just being. Enjoying the down time. My work has been slow, so we're packing a lot of fun activities into our days while we can. It's also been a summer of contemplation... buds of uncertainty which I'm positive will bloom into new adventures as soon as I settle on a direction and put my back into it... just wait and see. In the mean time we've been:

playing on the sculptures at 100 acre park...

exploring the midwest's largest flea market on the hottest day of the year...

collecting pretty rounded rocks at the warren dunes...

floating in lake michigan...

waking up, going out to the beach with coffee in hand and smelling bonfires still smoking from the wee hours...

making homemade pizza with all the fixins'...

listening to concerts in the park and dancing with daddy...

Also: running through sprinklers, blueberry picking, grilling skinny eggplants, working on my home inspiration books, visiting antique malls, petting the animals at the fair, jumping in fountains, drinking root beer floats, watching movies late at night, yoga on the beach, being honked at by a goose, double dating, building a new website for my rep, reading and writing book reports, applying to be a substitute teacher at the Y, coloring, picking tomatoes and looking up at clouds.

I love summer.
