we have had the heat and humidity, yes.
but, more than that, the inauguration of summertime really kicks in for us with long evenings spent in the back yard.
as a family.
doing little bits of nothing.
or doing little bits of lots.
the days are longer.
bedtime comes and goes and still we are outside.
there are lightning bugs to catch, sparklers to twirl and pages to be read.
and just soon, i am so looking forward to cuddling our baby out in our back yard.
or by our fountain.
or around the fire.
or on the porch swing.
summertime goodness has begun.
