HELLO, July

Hello, July! We’re ready for all the fun you bring this month, starting with our “Fourth of July” celebrations and watching “JAWS” in the dark. We’re ready for our “Christmas in July” party to follow not long after the 4th, where Christmas gets a summer makeover. 

We’re ready for the school year to come to a close and with that, the chance to visit with family that we have not seen in many, many moons. We’re ready for those lazy hazy days of summer that you will bring. Eating cherries while reading books, dipping our toes in the cool ocean water and feasting on homemade ice cream for dinner on hot summer nights. 

We’re ready for pimento cheese sandwiches and salty potato chip dinners on the beach and marshmallows roasted to within an inch of their life before being smooshed between chocolate coated cookies for dessert. 

We’re ready to keep grooving to the 70’s and 80’s music that has so far been the soundtrack of our summer. We’re ready for the few adventures we have planned before you come to a close. Welcome, July! We’re ready for all that you bring.

HELLO, July

Well, HELLO, July! This month you bring with you the end of the school year and boy are we ready for that! We’re ready for our Fourth of July celebrations and watching JAWS in the dark after dinner. We’re ready for our Christmas in July party with a summer twist and watching old Christmas movies and listening to Christmas music and just generally feasting on Christmas happiness. 

We’re ready for the luxury of more warm days and chances to go swimming. We’re ready to eat our weight in all the gorgeous fruit that is in-season at the moment. We’re ready to make pies out of the fresh blueberries and cherries we’ve been greedily gobbling up, topped with a big scoop of homemade ice cream. 

We’re ready for lazy summer weekends in which we get to read on the beach and pack a picnic for lunch of ham sandwiches with heirloom tomatoes, salty potato chips and a thermos of iced tea. We’re ready for cheeseburgers and fresh corn on the cob from the greengrocers, smothered in butter and each bite has juices running down our chins. 

We’re ready to continue to dance to the 60’s and 70’s soundtrack of our summer that has us in quite the groove lately. We’re ready to watch evening fall as the breeze blows the curtains in the open window and we just get to sit and be. Welcome, July, we’re ready for all that you bring.
