Summer Love & Lovin Summer



"Happy Summer". Those 2 words go hand in hand no matter whats going on in my world. 
 I have been enjoying my summer immensely. We haven't gone on vacation or traveled anywhere exotic, but I have enjoyed the slower pace of the day (even at work) and no deadlines when I get home, other than a very hungry pre-teen who greets me at the door with "what's for dinner mom"?
 Just the "there's no school tomorrow so you can stay up late" kind of feeling that makes life just a little more enjoyable for mom, dad and kids.
 As August is just on the horizon, I kinda feel myself looking forward to the cooler days, chilly nights and of course the cooking, baking, nesting, rearranging and decorating for fall that makes me feel so warm inside. I have been like that since I was a young girl, always looking forward to the holidays and making our house warm and cozy.
I enjoyed re-arranging the hearth on the fireplace in our family room. It's where we share dinners from the adjacent kitchen and watch television, talk, laugh and most of all "live".

Happy Summer and thanks for visiting.

Summertime Smiles,

Debbie

No vacations for us. Saving up for the "wedding" next fall!

Your house is so cute. I love summer too for the same reasons. So much more relaxed around here. See you Friday. We need to pick a time. Earlier is better I hope that works for you too.

Hi Debbie! Oh, I know the feeling about lovely summer. But it's so very hot and humid here. I don't do well in the heat. I love seeing your pretties on your mantel and hearth. Looks so sweet and homey. Debbie, I appreciate your comments so much about my mother's curio cabinet and even though I don't
'preach' on my blog, my prayer is that others will see Jesus.
You are the sweetest one,
Shelia :)
