one must wait for the evening to see how splendid the day has been...

summer 2013

it's really not until after labor day that you get to see just how truly beautiful the summer has been.
june, july and august seem to pass with rapid speed leaving behind so many family memories.
so many cherished days. there is so much i will miss.  the heat, the extra sunshine, the longer days, our garden, corn on the cobb,  the tomatoes that only summer can provide.   i hate to see it all end.
it has been one of those summers that has been so full and it makes me fully aware of just how very lucky i am.  we are deep in the happy hours, i know these hours won't last forever so i am trying to sink into them as deeply as i can. 
memories layered over the course of months, bronze sunflowers blooming everywhere, a hummingbird that was practically on my shoulder as i drank coffee on my deck on this peaceful 1st day of september.  the sense of summer ending and the anticipation of all that is to come.
i am ready for all of the come what mays
 and so very grateful for all that has been.

love sent, xo
