Hello friends! It’s Monday–and for us it’s the first morning of summer. So yep, we are happy and relaxed and not in a big hurry to go anywhere. Steve performed a wedding at See Canyon Fruit Ranch in Avila Beach–and it’s a breath-taking venue. During the rehearsal on Friday evening, I walked around and snapped some pictures. Let’s say hello to a new week!

Hello apples! Matthias has decided he likes green apples. He’s kind of a picky eater, so I love when he gets excited about healthy foods.

Hello summer! We are officially in lazy morning mode. I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to get out of the house before noon.

Hello fresh flowers. I’ve been creating little arrangements from our garden and it makes the house feel happy. It also encourages me to tidy up–so that’s a good thing.

Hello soda. I had four sodas at the wedding on Saturday. I hardly ever drink regular soda–and I went crazy. Yay sugar high!

Hello DIY project to share this week. Hint, it has to do with sailboats.

Hello kitty. Honestly, I’m not much of a cat person, but this cat was super friendly.

Hello berries. My favorites right now are raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. Yum!

Hello taking walks. We’ve been walking to the park, to frozen yogurt and to the grocery store. It makes me happy to walk instead of drive.

Hello summer list! Have you made yours yet? We have already checked off two things!

Hello allergic reaction. We used a new toothpaste for David and he woke up with irritated skin around his mouth. Poor guy.

Hello orange flower. The above is my favorite pic of the bunch. I might have to frame it.

Hello BBQ. Seems like a good week to cook up some burgers.

Hello groceries. We need some–which means I’m off to the store with my menu for the week and a list of basics!

Hello Monday! It’s here–a brand new shiny week.
