S is for Summer…

… S is for the social butterflies that gather by the lake.

(Look to the left of the photo – I love the joy of that man laughing.)

… For the serenity of another dazzling sunset.

… And for skipping stones in pajamas on a warm summer night.

    Everytime I come over here…I get a little emotional. The beauty. The sun sets. The honey colored skies. The man laughing. The poetry. The puppies with grey hair. All of it 🙂 thank you. xx
