Summer Bliss - And Thinking Outside the Box.

Ah Summertime. Blooming flowers, dancing butterflies, long firefly evenings, and creative time with my kids. Here are a few things that have given me beautiful joyful inspiration. What is yours?
My husband and I reunited with a couple we had not seen since we parted ways after graduate school 15 years ago. Since then, we have had careers and seven kids between us. We traveled to where they live now, and our kids got along beautifully. It was a magical day of sharing, eating, swimming, and lots of catching up. We ended the perfect summer evening with a fire in their fire pit and fireworks.
Thinking Outside the Box:
My mom and I took my kids to see the movie Avengers. The super hero movie of all super hero movies! My little guy stood almost the whole time and was totally absorbed. He found a hammer at home and was swinging it around like Thor. I took it from him and told him I would make him a better hammer with magical powers. Thinking quickly, I dumped out the contents of the mac n cheese and taped it around the paper towel roll. Much better. Then, my 11 year old son put me to shame and made his brother something cooler.
This is his super hero gun creation. I was impressed with the details.
Scope, trigger, and stand included. A very happy and well armed super hero.

Lastly, my Wildflower Soul Painting continues. Here is my work in progress called Deep True You.
Thank you so much for being here. Sending you joy and peace,
