in the good old summertime

Hey y'all!

I thought I'd take a break from playing catch-up in the garden to pop in and say hi.

No Spring clean-up last year + hardly any summer maintenance + very little fall clean-up = total chaos.

Dandelions and thistles and lots of grass in places that grass should not be.

My usual Spring schedule has me outside at least eight hours a day, and I was pretty bummed to discover that I don't quite have the energy back to pull off that kind of ambitious agenda. I was actually bragging to whoever would listen that I was back to 100%, but that was before I added outdoor chores to my life.


But, there is light at the end of the tunnel, and I'm hoping to be totally on top of things within a couple weeks because this summer is totally going to make up for last summer.

BBQ's, parties, fun company coming to visit, hikes, trips to the farmers market, porch swinging, dock sitting.

Classic summer activities, but paired with a renewed appreciation for the gift of being alive to enjoy them.

To that end, I need your help.

I'm compiling the end all/be all summer playlist and I'd LOVE it if you would chime in with an all time favorite summer tune or two.

Songs that make you happy. Songs that make you feel the sunshine every time you hear them.

Any era, any genre.

Thank-you and have a happy Monday everyone!
