That said, I thought I would share some photos and catch up with you all.
There is so much going on this summer. Usually we have very laid back weeks, but this summer feels like a marathon. There has been fun times along with the challenging ones, and I am grateful for both. It is a blessing to come alongside friends and help share their burdens.
Yesterday Rachel and I made up a tea basket with scones, cream, Orange Irish Marmalade, mugs, a variety of teas, and took them to the Hospitality Lane folks at the hospital. We figured they needed something other than hospital food, and what's better than tea and scones?
My friend Jen and I are taking my mom and our girls out on a shopping trip today. Our friends and my mom have never been to Charming Charlie's or Anthropologie. We may even stop at Terrain! What a great day it's going to be - oh and I may need a stop at Trader Joe's!
We have just under 7 weeks until Nate and Kay's wedding! We did some shopping for that yesterday too. Here is a sneak peek at what Kamryn will be wearing.
She's the flower girl!
We will be starting school in about two weeks, and Tim will be officially full time in his own business on the same day, August 3rd! I'll share the story of how this came about so quickly another day. It's so exciting!
We took Tim's mom to see Joseph at Sight and Sound when she was here. She loved it.
We've been enjoying the pool at Camp Geezer. It's been HOT here!
I love these sunny Rudbekia. They are a summer staple at Creekside Cottage.
The garden is starting to produce! Our first tomato and pepper!
I'm growing cantaloupe this summer! They are doing really well! This is very exciting!
We're eating delicious food this summer, too!
Rachel's belated birthday gift for my mom. She made it out of pallets. I did the hand lettering, but she painted everything and built the sign. I'll try to get a photo of the finished product! My mom was so surprised!
I love my girl...
In thinking about this summer I am reminded of Psalm 37:23 -
"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way."
How is your summer going?
