a day to relax


What a lovely morning it is.  The sun is out, but it is slightly veiled with some wispy clouds which will most likely keep the heat down.  There is a gentle breeze coming in the french doors to our bedroom.  The birds are singing their morning song which is the nicest way to start the day.  I am looking forward to this day and the peace and quiet it brings~




Yesterday was a marvelous day here on the farm.  After a busy Friday cleaning, tidying, painting, and building everything looked lovely.  The weather was beautiful, albeit a bit warm. The food was wonderful, colorful, tasty.  We had a mix of friends - people we have known only a short time, and people we have known for years and years.  It was a festive evening, but quiet.  I think that I felt the absence of the big boys which changed the mood for me.  I had a really nice time, but that youthful exuberance that comes with having silly teenage boys simply wasn't there.  I am thankful that the little boys were here as they had such fun running around through the guests, eating cupcakes and watermelon, and ooohing and aahhing at the firework display.  






I think that today might be a lovely day to take Frances and go on a photography hunt.  I haven't done it in a while and am feeling inspired to find some wonderful treasures through the viewfinder~

Have a lovely Sunday my friends,
xo
