lazy summer days

 “Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair...” - Susan Polis Schutz

 It's been scorching hot over here and I have fallen into a deliciously lazy spell that I can't seem to get out of:) Morning walks, Tara and I eating breakfast in the sunshine listening to music, feeding the ducks...just...sitting in the sun drinking blackberry lemonade:). 

We took Tara to the circus for the first time!!!! So much excitement!! Her best parts were the animals...the elephants, horses and dogs. And I was simply in awe of the fantastically talented trapeze artists and gymnasts. It was so neat experiencing things through a kids eyes yet appreciating all the talent + hard work that went into the show.

Been reading tons...and I am seriously in love with this book.It has been speaking to me in the most intimate of ways. It's sad and broken and beautiful and hopeful. I am almost done but am trying to prolong the last few chapters because I so don't want it to be over!!!! Loving her honest, lyrical writing that sings of the fire  of the human spirit.'s hilarious!!!

 Tara's been getting in a lot of painting. It's so neat for me to just step back and observe here...she loves painting with both hands. And she sings, friends!!! It's the most adorable thing and she's not even aware that she's doing it...but as soon as she starts painting...she starts singing:) Love!!!

I started  a new journal and have been writing tons and tons in here. All sorts of things...hopes and dreams, ideas, working through this book (which I love!).

Hope you all are having a wonderful summer so far...

Lots of goodness here.... what you didn't mention is updating your blog. It looks fantastic... I am soooo overdue for that, but it's not my favorite thing, so you know what that means..... everything else comes first! One of these days... Anyway, love especially the singing Tara!
