Some Lovely Friday Summer Thoughts

The weather here has been a little cooler than normal here in Charlotte the past few days.  It is summertime and I had to put a long sleeved sweater on the other night.  I also had a mug of hot tea not the usual cold to cool off!  I love it though!!  I was home by myself for a few hours last night so I decided to indulge in one of my favorite past times-scrolling through  I found some really lovely summer photos.  I thought I would share a few (all photos via

 This is Carolina Beach, NC.  Isn't it gorgeous!!  I hope to be able to go to the Beach atleast once this summer.
 I thought these espadrilles were so cute!  I love the color and they would look wonderful with linen pants, a cute summery skirt, jeans, shorts, really any outfit!
 When I saw this Strawberry Water I thought how beautiful!  I bet that would cool you off on a hot summers day.
 I am using my lime green leather bag right now and I love it but wouldn't this pink bag be awesome!
 Who could resist wearing this lovely!
 What would summer be without our flips!!  Aren't these cute with the little whales on them.  Love them!!
 Summer flowers are in abundance right now.  I have to say being in the apartment with no gardens is really hard this year but I love looking at what other people are growing.  These lily of the valley are just beautiful in the green mug.  I can smell them from here!
 Summertime is a time for slowing down, taking it easy and I could do that in this hammock!  That isn't Teddy in the picture but it could be.  He would be in the hammock with me though-LOL!!  He loves to be close by for sure!
 These popsicles bring back memories for me.  My Mom would always have popsicles in the freezer.  My sisters and I would eat the out by the pool to cool off from the hot summer sun.  Love the colors in these popsicles!
Last but not least I love this tote!!  You could use it at the Beach or you could use it as a handbag.  I love these types of totes too-they are usually really strong and durable.

Well I hope you've enjoyed this little summer post!  What summer memories or favorite items are at the top of your list!  ENJOY your summer!

I love those espadrilles... and hope to buy another pair. They are sooo comfy. I only have them black..., not very summery. Would love stripes or navy blue.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
