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.
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).
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?
