A Little Time

I wanted to wish everyone a very happy
4th of July long weekend

Been thinking...
Life is short and I very much want to spend
some
fun, loving Summer days with my family

I will be taking a couple weeks to enjoy special time
with my family, create new art items and
getting my store just the way I want it
(finally back in order and perfectly stocked ;)


Little field trips here and there for treasures


And just being cozy with my pets too!


Enjoy all beautiful blessings that come your way
this Summertime and I'll see you soon!


Ooh, one more thing...
What are your plans for the Summer?

Au revoir for now~

Hi Tracie,

Happy 4th of July and Summertime to you!

Love all your beautiful photos you shared.

What am I doing? It is winter over here and I have just enjoyed a weeks holiday in the Sun, in Fiji.
So just hunkering down here, with the cold and rain. I do like it though to be able to do all those indoor things.

Enjoy your break with your family and pets.

Hugs

Tracie, have a wonderful 4th with your family. My summer, well, I feel like the fist half has been full steam ahead, and now I'm ready for the lazy days of summer. I'm going to enjoy the warm weather with a glass of lemonade or sweet tea, pick strawberries,visit the zoo, attend a few outdoor concerts, and window shop at my favorite antique shops. -All things relaxing.......blessings!

Have a nice few weeks off, Tracie. My two week summer vacation is over, so I'm back to work and it will just be weekends at the farmhouse for the rest of the summer. However, we will try to slow things down as much as possible, in every which way.
