Al Fresco

Hello Darlings,

The best thing about summer is the warm weather that beckons us outdoors to spend time al fresco...

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.
~ Celia Thaxter

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer...
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Love is to the heart what the summer is to farmer's year ~ it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul.
~ Author Unknown

A life without love is like a year without summer.
Swedish Proverb

"Always remember the beauty of the Garden,
for there is peace."
~ Author Unknown

"The serene philosophy of the pink rose is
steadying.  Its fragrant, delicate petals
open fully and are ready to fall, without
regret or disillusion, after only a day in the
sun.  It is so every summer.
One can almost hear the pink, fragrant murmur
as they settle down upon the grass:
'Summer, summer, it will always be summer."
~Rachael Peden

I hope you are enjoying the warmest
period of the year al fresco!

With lots of love,

I'm joining...

Sun~Kissed Days

Hello Darlings,

     We took some time off and head to ...
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

That first step onto the warm sand,
that first view of the sparkling Atlantic
and that first ocean breeze...
Simply Amazing!

Making memories last forever ...

Great Fun!

"Live in the sunshine, swim the sea,
drink the wild air"
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Precious daughter, may God's light
always shine on you!

blessings be upon you!


Beautiful gifts from God!
