Good afternoon, everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your Tuesday. I had attempted to upload photos of my flowers earlier using SMILEBOX without success. I really enjoy the program, and hope that eventually I will be able to figure out how to share the layouts I've created in my journal. Till then, I will continue to use the AOL layout, which does allow for a bit of variety.
It's a beautiful day here.. The sun is bright, the sky blue and the breeze gentle and refreshing. The last couple nights have really cooled down ~ low in the 50s ~ a sure sign that summer has once again flown by with the wind and that fall is just around the corner.
We spent over an hour out in the yard last evening watching the continuing shower of meteors in the night sky. The girls had never seen such a wonderous sight ~ so many streaks in short amount of time. Mailee had never even seen a shooting star, so she was absolutely THRILLED, screeching with delight at each stream of fire across the star-filled sky. She'd shout, "There's one!" and grab my arm with one hand while pointing with the other.. then snuggle up close to await the next, whispering, "I love you, mommy..." in my ear. It was one of the nicest things we've done this summer.
In close, I will share a not so great pic of our blanketed spot in the yard ~ much too dark, but I like the photo's reminder of how sometimes the most beautiful of things in life that seem so out of reach can truly be much closer than we realize, if we only choose to see.
