The First Day Of Summer

Why did I think 
TODAY
was the 
FIRST DAY
of summer?

It was yesterday!
What do I LOVE about
summer?
Pink Lemonade Slushes!
(click on image for recipe)
I love the way the wind
ruffles the waves
out in front of the house.
I love that our
Fairy Garden
is flourishing...
I love driving across
the peninsula 
to Algoma and 
watching the kids play
in the 
BIG WATER of Lake Michigan.
I love the slow roll
of fog that wraps
its hazy arms around
the lighthouse.
But, most of all,
I love our backyard
and the faces you see.
Like 
THIS ONE
Gotta love a face like that!

  2. The fairy garden is looking great now. I like the sound of the strawberry lemonade. And SweetCheeks face in the last pic looks like someone forgot to put the sugar in her lemonade!

  3. You certainly have all the makings for a perfect summer day! I can't wait to hit the beaches of Lake MI in a few days!

  4. A perfect day to me would be sitting in your yard sipping a Pink Lemonade slushy, facing the water, and catching that face out of the corner of my eye, Diana! Enjoy it all!

  5. I thought summer always started on June 21st. What happened? When did it change to June 20th and who changed it? And IS CHRISTMAS STILL GOING TO BE DECEMBER 25th?
    I mean, REALLY? Why change things that have been working perfectly for ages?
    And the iced lemonade and Sweet Cheeks face look pretty inviting. Summer is sensational! I hope it's not shorter. Did they take a day away or will fall start one day later, too?

  13. I'm just like you. I had it in my head that summer started on June 21. Finally I realized that date was my late mother in law's birthday. (Maybe I NEVER knew when summer started. hehehe)
