summer days...flying by

The other night, my guy and I were sitting out on the deck just visiting. He was playing Lego's and I was working on my epic cross stitch (which is now mere stitches away from being done!) "Why does summer go by so fast?", he asked, as he reached for another Lego. I wonder the same thing! I can't seem to soak it in fast enough. Our days have been filled with:

::visits from friends
::neighborhood games that last until dark

::enjoying fresh off the vine cherry tomatoes

::starting a new project, thanks to Larissa!

:: holding sweet, sleeping babies

:: and enjoying the beauty that is around us!

I hope that you're enjoying summer...no matter how fast or slow it's traveling!

Loved your post today! It's hard to belirve that the 4th of July has come and gone already. Your pictures are amazing.
I am not a person who knows how to cross stitch but yours looks great.

Our summer is flying by too - we're trying to truly enjoy each day. Your cherry tomatoe looks sweet - ours are still green. I can't wait to see your cross stitch!

Sweet photos, Lisa. Hey, you have cherry tomatoes already? I love, love, love standing among the tomato plants and stuffing myself with sun-warmed cherry tomatoes. A sleeping child is so precious to behold!

We've been having really weird weather this summer, and I'm tired of people always dwelling on the negative. They're already counting down until fall!! I'd just rather savor every single day, whatever it brings, look for the good and be joyful. It seems like you and yours have mastered this outlook, too.
Bless you.

It's hard to believe how fast the days of summer and life fly by...sometimes we need to sit back and soak it up. So much to do, does that happen as we become adults?
