More summer photos as we enter the middle of summer already. There's been a lot of baking going on in our farmhouse kitchen---this summer by our 15 year-old daughter. It's all so good, but I'm trying very hard to limit myself to very small portions or just a taste. Surely there are no carbs or calories in just a taste, right?
Our grandson tags along with us to all our usual summer spots once a week. His aunties and uncles absolutely adore him.
This past week he began walking while he was with us at the house of some friends. It was just as exciting to see him take his first steps as it was with all of my own children.
We've been trying out some new restaurants the past couple of weeks.
We're venturing out and sampling places we wouldn't normally try. And we've been pleasantly surprised every time. This summer for me is about taking some chances, stepping out of my comfort zone, and being open to adventure.
Don't get me wrong; I love our country life.
Our little farm on the mountain brings its unique beauty and peace...
...and its own type of quirky excitement.
But as we celebrated my grandmother's 99th birthday with her this weekend, I knew that I want to live the rest of my life to the fullest. That means taking some chances, doing something different, and seizing opportunities as they come.
And loving and enjoying everything in my life that I already have.
