long summer evenings


Long summer evenings in Michigan, when the sun doesn't set until after 9:00. You sip wine on the porch and steal occasional kisses from your gentleman. You eat from the garden and cook on the grill. You watch fireflies signal to each other as they slowly float across the lawn.

And you are thankful ~ because these are moments of pure contentment.

Looks like home. We were raised in Indiana, a simple, beautiful place.

I drove through Indiana on Monday morning. That part of the country is the perfect antidote to this hectic, crazy world.

Spending time together, grilling, dining al fresco, and finding quilt blocks and historical Staffordshire at a shop. It was pretty terrific.

its such a nice scene, the flowers, the mood and most of all the people whom you want to be with and it makes home

Hope you don't have to steal occasional kisses, I hope the kisses never stop - our motto is always kiss me goodnight.

Henna ~ thank you!

pve ~ the porch does call for a bit of decorum. Otherwise your advice will be followed most enthusiastically.
