Summer Time

Now that summer has officially begun I have my list of what I love so much about this season.  I love waking up without that sense of urgency to get my kids off to school...

which allows me to enjoy my cup of coffee in the morning....

I love being able to stay up a little later and read, I can do that since we have lazy mornings.

I love lounging poolside...

with my lunch...

and perhaps a cocktail.

I love having dinner outside whether it is at my favorite restaurant, or my own deck...

I love spending weeks at Lake Michigan...

enjoying the lazy days of summer...

where our only worry is how to build a better sandcastle...

And I love seeing my girls having a lemonade stand, just like I did with my sisters years ago...

Happy Summer!!


  1. Happy Summer to you Jill!

  2. I love summer too!! These are great pictures. I wish we had a pool that we could go to (that isn't crowded). Unless I'm in Bloomington and go to my sister in law's country club it's beach for us. Enjoy! You do have a beautiful life!

  3. Oh what great photos! I agree summer activities and days lounging lazily by the pool are the best!

  4. I love the summer too! Except i am not going to lie I miss my little man being in school and having that free time! Cheers to cocktails at the pool!
