Summer Sunflowers

The lazy days of summer.

A time when we are grateful to be gathered together and yet happily go in different directions.

For some, this means daily.




For me, I believe that there is such a thing as sacred idleness.




Days of undoing to balance the days of doing to much.




Between the alfresco lunches, laughter & laundry -

Lovely languid moments to look closely at life.




Like grace, these moments should be savored.




Before the long days of summer take a final bow.


I hope your summer days have been filled with the moments that you love.  A special thank you to Alison, Lauren & Amanda for planting the seeds & growing beautiful sunflowers every single summer!
