Five Minute Friday: favorite

We are finding our summer rhythm, which looks like weekly visits to the pool, the ocean, and/or the children’s fountain play area in our local botanical garden mixed in with lots of popsicles, the $1 summer movies, and some play dates with friends. Having a plan has made such the difference for me/us. I do promise a post soon devoted to all things summer.

For today, it’s Five Minute Friday time and today’s prompt of “favorite.”

The horizon of ocean meeting sky – an image of infinity and feeling lost in this vastness.

berriesStrawberries red and ripe, and blueberries fresh picked at the peak of summer.

Late night heart-to-heart chats with family and friends.

Lightning bugs at twilight.

Smiles and cuddles from my curly-haired and straight-haired twins.

Blue mountain ranges stretching into forever.

The last light of day disappearing and lighting up the sky in its wake.

A day with no agenda.

A day full of enjoyable plans.

Road trips (without kids).

Bubbly prosecco.

Morning coffee with hazelnut creamer.

Steak grilled to melt-in-your-mouth perfection (yes, there *is* such a thing).

Connection and creativity and grace and light and beauty and joy …

These are a few of my favorite things. What are yours?
