We welcomed summer yesterday, in our backyard, with friends. Fourteen adults, sixteen children and three dogs gathered for a potluck, complete with bubbles, balloons, lots of play, good conversation, and lots of laughter. Mother Nature cooperated in full force gifting us the most beautiful hot and humid summer day.
There are so many moments I wished I had captured with my camera, but instead I choose to be present, capturing the moments in my heart, where they will be held with gratitude. It truly was a wonderful day, and there were many times when I stood still for a second and just took in the feeling of gratitude that ran through me as I watched some of my closest friends with their families enjoying my space and time with each other. Some new friends joined us too, new friends who I am sure will become close friends.
Summer is here, finally, and with the first official potluck complete, the planning now begins for more summer fun...a summer handmade homemade swap party, a women's circle with my amazing tribe of women, and more potlucks, definitely more potlucks. Happy summer!
