Last summer, I took to making time each day to sit on my flower-filled front porch and enjoy time outdoors with a book or magazine. This practice got me outdoors, which I love, and gave me space and time to relax, which is what makes summer lovely. I made a series of Instagram pictures to mark the hours spent in this fashion, a practice I am continuing this year. But there’s no reason Instagram should have all the fun.
Today dawned bright and lovely, a morning with sunshine and temperatures in the mid 60s. Sitting outside with my coffee and book while surrounded by flowers and the morning bird chorus, I was reminded again of the power of nature and the time to enjoy it all. Here’s to summer, y’all!
