Life's a Beach! Ten things to love about summer in Missouri

1.  Fresh tomatoes. I have six plants just full of baby maters. I am just holding my breath that these          summer storms do not ruin them... Fierce!
2.  Air conditioning.....  Ah, what a difference you make...



3.  Late, hazy sunsets. Something about the personality and palette of twilight just speaks into my            soul!



 4.  Midnight movies from Amazon Prime or Netflix. My most recent, Hello, My Name is Doris with        Sally Field. Amazing! I really enjoyed it as a light-hearted treat.



5.  Watermelon.
6.  Locusts singing at Twilight. They sound like school is getting ready to start. I hear the stores are          stocking their aisles... That is always a pull for this retired teacher.



6.  Art. I am happily dabbling away...


7. Summer's dark storms. I just watched a locust tree lose a large portion of its top.



8.  Thoughts of Homecoming and all its treasures... I hope to attend a little this year.


9.  Pitchers and jars of citrus fruit water. Love this look!



10. I am loving my summer planners and journals. I do not know what I would do without that                 creative outlet



What is on your list?

Whimsy and Hugs!

There's nothing better than a hot, sunny summer full of amazing sunsets, crickets chirping at dusk, ice cold lemonade, buzzing bees in the catmint, the scent of freshly mowed grass, and swinging in the shade of a screened in porch. :) I am a summer girl through and through! I'm so glad that you are enjoying a wonderfully blessed summer, Gayla!

Illinois \ Missouri ~~ where I spent the first twenty years of my life, forever my heart's home. You nailed it with the top ten ~ though I am tempted to make my first six FRESH TOMATOES!
