Wonderful photos, happy memories for you both. I'm lovin' 'stronger than ever', really beautiful artwork and so meaningful.

Lavender lemonade sounds delicious and looks pretty too. My favourite summertime drink? Pimms. I don't know if you have it in USA, it's a very British drink, alcoholic, mixed with lemonade and served with fruit in it (like strawberries, raspberries) and also cucumber, celery and mint. Sounds bizarre? Yes, I guess it is, but it's delicious!

We break up from school next Friday for a 6 week holiday, and I. can't. wait.!!!!

I love the pictures. Isn't summertime the best? What is the lavender lemonaid? I've never heard of it.

Oh, Katie-girl,
That was a wonderful treat. I have been looking for something very special for Jud and me for our anniversary and love what you gave to each other. It would certainly fit us but Jud might have a problem with another angel image as our house is full of them...I cannot stop!!!

Your pictures convey such joy, rest, love, friends, children...the things I care about the most. You really captured them well!!!

I am enjoying and struggling through the Ragmuffin Gospel, drying to dispel some old beliefs that get in the way of my faith. I think of you all of you time when I read it.

Sending you much love, dear Katie!!!

Thank You for sharing your beautiful summer memories with us.

lovely lovely lovely lovely !!!

Jo said it.. Pimms.
I was in the supermarket & heard some ladies talking about whether cloudy lemonade ( which is very nice ) would go with Pimms. I caught their eyes & said, 'NO - you need clear lemonade!'
We had a giggle.
Pimms + lemonade + ice + chopped fruit/cucumber/mint garnish = aaahhh !

Wonderful summer memories Katie. I want that lovely bicycle! I'll have to try the lavender lemonade, I've been drinking blackberry lemonade and loving it.... Well, out to do the never-ending watering of flowers. Something came up on the deck yesterday and completely devoured my sweet potato vines! They were just gorgeous, and POOF, gone! Let's try for a cold drink together this week (if you can get away). xoxo

Lovely images and memories of summer! We took many family vacations to Colorado when I was growing up and did a lot of hiking. My parents had property in Estes Park and were going to retire there but they divorced after 21 years of marriage. :/ Haven't tried lavender lemonade -- but here we can get mint lemonade which is absolutely delicious on a hot day. I'm thinking I might like Pimms too. :) Have a wonderful Wednesday. Tammy
