My Summer Heart

Summer is winding down. I don't mean the heat we still have some more of that to come. But the slowness that summer brings. The days are the same in length but they seem longer with the warm sun shinning well into the evening. You sit on your patio longer and take walks around the block at almost 9pm when the sky turns a dusty rose. All my friends and family and even Superman are talking about school starting so that makes it feel official. We start to settle more into a routine that we don't seem to have in summer. You have to start going to bed earlier and you spend more time indoors.

It makes me miss my childhood when I used to bowl in the summer with my grandma or make mud pies with my dad by the lake ...when did I grow up? It also makes me thankful for the adventures I have had this summer and what I have learned about myself. 

So here's to slower days...

Ice tea on the patio

Fans on full blast 

Watching the evening roll in.

Sniffing the summer flowers in the wind


And finding yourself or at least who you want to be.

Floral Friday

I am pretty much obsessed with all things floral and I love having fresh flowers around my house. It has become a must in my world. The make me feel relaxed and luxurious without spending a fortune. I don't spend $100 worth or anything. I usually spend about $20 bucks a month to keep them in the house all month. I by the inexpensive ones that last a long time and when I can, I cut them from my yard (that is the best way). I like to make sure I have some on Thursday night fresh and ready so we can enjoy them over the weekend. The same way I like to clean my house and make sure I make the bed so when I come home on Friday afternoon my house greats me and says "sit back, make a cocktail and relax it's the weekend!" So here's what I have going on for this weekend....

I think all of these cost about $8 and I have had the top and bottom ones for a week. Super Man brought home the middle ones last-night. I hope you have a wonderful relaxing weekend filled with slow days, cold drinks, late mornings, the cool side of your pillows, and lots of good food!!

Speaking of food I will post our ceviche recipe soon.
