Happy July!

“Oh, Hi! I didn’t see you there!”

I’ve been having too much FUN lately, so I’m a few days late to wish you “Happy July!” I’ll never know what happened to the rest of June? It went by in a blur of carousel colours and lights, red ringlets, freckles, baby toes, chocolate cream pie, hot summer car rides that ended in ice cream cone licking, strawberry moons, eating from the garden and being surrounded by everyone I love.

Here’s to hoping that July holds as much FUN and happiness as June did!

School’s Out for Summer

WOOOO-HOOOO! School’s out for summer!!! Here’s to early morning runs with the sunrise and staying up late till the stars come out, watching movies on the vintage projection screen. Here’s to eating pimento cheese sandwiches and potato chips for lunch and drinking sweet tea. Here’s to lazing about listening to music and reading books and playing board games. Here’s to hot summer days and cool summer evenings, to waffle cones stuffed with homemade ice-cream, to picnics and candlelight filled nights. To cooking new recipes and making old favourites. Here’s to just being, to catching our breaths, to make-out sessions on the couch. Here’s to summer sewing projects and art exhibitions and long strolls in the park and visiting the fair and eating our weight in funnel cakes. Here’s to adventure! Here’s to the summer, long may it last!

Just Being

Jennifer Michie Chicken Ramen

We went for a long walk today, cleaned the house, did laundry and ran errands. As a treat we decided to have dinner out. The evening was cool and a steaming bowl of chicken ramen soup seemed like a perfect idea.

I love the pace of summer. The chance to truly march to your own drum and do things on the fly. We’ve stayed up late the past few nights watching Stranger Things. I’m totally hooked! It makes me nostalgic for the 80s.

We love the main theme, there is a slight Tangerine Dream vibe going on there.

Hello August!

Seashells

Well August has arrived. This morning was cool and cloudy, but the sun is working hard on trying to peak out. We’re in the process of making a “Summer Bucket List”, I’m hoping to dip my toes in the ocean at least once. Here’s to Summer, long may it last!

Summer Fun

School’s out for summer! I can hear Alice Cooper singing those sweet lines in my head as I type. Here’s to road trips, long walks, sleeping in, staying up late. To new adventures. To having a movie fest, playing board games and cards. To eating delicious food prepared at a slow pace.

Here’s to living off PB&J and pimento cheese sandwiches, laying in the sun and eating potato chips. To spur of the moment picnics. To making out while listening to good tunes and to taking each day as it comes. Here’s to summer, long may she last!

Sunshine

Jennifer Michie Sunshine

I headed out early for my walk today and was rewarded with a gloriously cool morning and lots and lots of sunshine. Although, now it is pouring with rain outside my window.

Here’s to the summer! Please bring us lots more sunshine, it makes my soul sing!

Strawberry Moon

Jennifer Michie Strawberry Moon 2016

This is not the best picture I know. But, I was so excited to see the Strawberry Moon last night that we ran out of the house without my Nikon; so I snapped this on my iPhone. The moon was still low in the sky, but it had a pinky-peachy golden hue about it and the night felt magical.
