Dear Friends,
You may have noticed my new banner,
after finding this vintage photo of this
little miss ~ I knew she was
my summer banner girl!
After fashioning a banner for her ~
I needed a quote.
When I couldn't find one that I felt fit her,
I made up my own.
Then that got me started on this post ~
Life is so full of sweet things
as we look around in our lives,
and that is my hope and prayer for you
That you would savor the sweet things
all around you everyday.
At mid-summer I am always in a rush to get
everything I wanted to do in... and sometimes
I may miss that one person, that one sunrise,
that one magical just for me moment
that makes our lives more meaningful
and worthwhile.
So I am wishing time to savor
these things for you today!
Blessings on all your summer days!
Check back next week for:
inside a Seaside Flea Market, and some Summer Give Aways
(hint: Circus Tins and a great summer book!)
