Summertime. + a new design!

It's July third. How did that happen? I don't know, but I do know that I've been enjoying summertime at its best.

Summertime means hosting a camp for little girls, traveling to see friends in Minnesota, and having late-night pack runs in spandex. 

It means taking weekends to spend with family friends to just do fun stuff. 

It means dressing up in heels together to go to the grocery. [ my first time to wear stilettos out of the house. :) Don't worry, they were short. ]

It means that afternoons are spent listening to The Help and making applesauce. 

It's filled with gym time, friend time, reading time, and quiet time. 

It means I have time to hang out with my favorite kids, playing legos and making sparkly paper crowns.

It means picnics and picture taking and walking in the heat, which is never below 102 degrees.

It means that I can sit and write out my thoughts, sort them out, and pray about the things that trouble and confuse me.

It also means that my creativity runs rampant and I brainstorm 17 million projects [a skirt, a sweater, a quilt, etc.]

It leaves time for playing piano to my heart's content.

... And whenever this lazy girl gets around to it, it means blogging. ;)
