you capture: summertime

This week's You Capture is Summertime!  Ah, summertime.  I'm actually not a hot-weather kind of girl, but I do love warm sunny days that end in cool nights- just like yesterday!  It was a perfect day here in my neck of the woods.  I also love that we all crawl out of hibernation during the summer.  We reconnect with neighbors, sharing drinks, stories, and pools.  We take weekend trips to the beach (like we'll be doing this weekend) and lots of walks to the park.  We pick veggies and herbs out of the garden and we eat dinner outside.  I'm looking forward to an extended summer when we move to South Carolina!  But in the meantime, I'll enjoy the cooler Illinois summer for now.

Summertime is barefeet and butt ruffles in the grass.

Summertime is sporting cool shades.

Summertime is visiting with neighbors on the front porch.

Summertime is looking forward to the peaches that the neighbor always kindly shares when they are ripe.

Summertime is enjoying everything in full bloom!

Summertime is enjoying the yields of the garden.  Including our first ripe tomatoes!

Summertime is eating alfresco.  That means outside.  You already knew that, sorry.

I hope that you are enjoying your own summertime- wherever you are!
