Good morning friends!  Hope this little post finds you well.  Today is a bit better so far, thank the Lord!  A little sore but not as much pain. That is a wonderful blessing!  Anyway…enough about that…let’s talk summer favorites.

Summer has always been my season of choice.  I love them all…but summer has lots of things that I love.  I was born in the hottest part of the summer.  That could have something to do with it. πŸ˜‰ Think about it…watermelon, crickets, croaking bull frogs, swimming, ripe tomatoes, green grass…I could go on and on.  I won’t, but you understand.  Feel free to add to my list in the comments.

I love summer food.  I love the casual take on meal prep in the summer.  A bit lighter, and a bit brighter.  I love it when our church family gathers on our front lawn to celebrate independence. It’s so sweet to serve them…even if it’s just dogs from the grill.

I also love the laid back pace of summer.  I used to spend lots of time with my mom in the summer.  Just she and I, hanging out and having fun.  Those are some of my most treasured summer memories.  I try to make those with our kids.  I know that summers are fleeting and childhood is too. 

I hope that your summer is off to a great start…even if it is actually still spring.  I hope that this inspires you to enjoy summer…even if it’s not your favorite.  After all…the blessings of the Lord are all around us…in every season. ❀️

Love from the Farmhouse,
