High on Summertime

I don’t think I can even express how much I love summer.  Early morning alone time – just me and my coffee.  Well, and Matt Lauer, of course.  I’m usually just finishing my first cup when Becks wakes up.  Same thing everyday – Avengers and a breakfast bar.  By the time he remembers to ask for milk, I’m already in the kitchen working on that second cup of coffee, with the milk at the ready.


Then, we’re free.  The whole day.  We spend our time casually and I love it. 

We’ve spent a lot of time with family.  My mom’s birthday was this past weekend, and having us all together is just so dang fulfilling.


Matt and Chels are due any day with my niece, Sullee Hope.  We’re all so excited to have a baby around again.  Especially a little girl.  I think Becks and Sutton have fulfilled our boy quota indefinitely.  And, don’t let Matt fool you…he’s not really thinking that hard ;)

My baby sister starts her MBA program at UK next week.  Good golly, where has the time gone?   


Ahhhhh, summmer.  How I’ve missed you.




I think summer suits all of us.  Quite nicely.

I don't have kids to spend my summer days with yet, but I think summer suits me quite well too!

Having nowhere to go and nothing particular to do is the BEST.THING.EVER. And the name Sullee Hope is one of the cutest girl names I think I have ever heard!

Oh my! I'm with ya. I LOVE summer! I get a similar request every morning from my oldest... a breakfast bar and Jake and the Neverland Pirates! Enjoy your summer.

It looks like we both have super hero obsessed little boys. My son eats, sleeps, dreams, plays, (insert any other verb) SUPER HEROES of any kind. No joke. :)

You gotta tell me how you get your pictures to look like that. is it a setting or change the color or the lens or Photoshop? Please let me know?

Unknown said...

You have to tell me how you put that effect on your photos! Lenses? Photoshop? Setting? Camera (still canon xli)? I'm sooooo curious. Your pictures are so beautiful and your family is beyond beyond beautiful; which probably makes a difference too. (LOL) -Renae
