Warm sunshine, freshly made lemonade complete with lemon slices, a boat ride, juicy watermelon (seed spitting contests included), and sitting outside in the early evening to watch the fireflies. These are some of our favorite summer things. We request you to leave us a comment with your favorite summer pleasure. We would love to add your comment to a master list, and next week we will be posting the official Create & Decorate Guide to Simple Summer Pleasures. The summer days and nights fly by so quickly. We invite you to enjoy life’s little moments. We will be posting this list for you to print out and use as a check list to accomplish one simple pleasure for each of the remaining days of summer. By summer’s end, you will be able to look back and remember all of the little moments you took joy in.
Noelle has informed me that we are inviting you to enjoy summer, although we are not! Ouch. So, we are creating this list for us to enjoy, too. Take time to smell the flowers, friends. We know we need to as well. 🙂
One of you lucky commenters will be randomly drawn to win one of our favorite summertime books, Summer: A user’s guide. (yay!) The author of this book, Suzanne Brown has packed these pages with ideas for living life to the fullest in the summer months. You will find crafts, recipes, and nostalgia, as well as enticing photographs that will make you feel like you are on vacation even if you are only reading in your own backyard.
