summer vacays.

I / We just got back from two amazing vacations... hence my lack of posting. {This month's goal is to post more on this little sit o' mine.}

I first went to Vail with 6 of my best friends/roomates from college. We had a blast - lots of time chatting, EATING, & playing. I feel so blessed to still feel close to them even though we only get
to see each other once a year on our annual Lodge Reunion. They are special, dear people to me... they have seen me through lots of highs & lows and we still pick up right where we left off.

We then went to Hawks Cay in the Florida Keys with 3 other dear couple friends over the 4th of July. This trip was pure relaxation... plus some snorkeling, frolic-ing with the dolphins & an awesome firework show. Its such a treat to have couple friends that we both can equally say get along with both parts. Needless to say, I am still slowly creeping back into the daily grind.

I have felt such a sense of gratitude for my family & friends lately... so supported, loved, & known. I know the Lord places people here specifically in our lives to show us different, unique pieces of Him & His character... and it is fun recognizing those traits in my loved ones & appreciating them fully... sometimes if only over dinner, and others on awesome, extended vacations.

Happy Friday's eve!

fresh floral.

My sweet mother cut all these hydrangeas out of her backyard for me... she has them growing in abundance just like Ms. Martha Stewart does. Yes... I know, quite jealous.

They have been trucking along for almost two weeks now & still look great... it is amazing what fresh floral will do for your mood & your space. I could get very used to this.

Thanks mamasita! Happy Happy Monday!
