The sweet things of summer are too many to count. But if I were to pick a representative few, I might mention juicy, fresh berries, ice cream, cold lemonade, home-grown tomatoes and melons, blooming lilacs, and the scent of fresh cut alfalfa hay or a summer pasture. (Speaking of alfalfa hay, guess what we were busy doing during this 90 degree week?)
And for those of you who know what Leinenkugel’s is, well, let me just say Honey Weiss and Summer Shandy.
But sweet isn’t always about tastes and smells. Sometimes it’s about events and memories.
Delicate roses, frosting and cake, a church organ, and lots of family and friends often come together in summer celebrations of marriage. Even though I got married in February, I can still admit that summer is the season of weddings.
On July 13th this lovely couple said “I do.”
Congratulations Julie and Dan!
And now I’m a tad jealous as they get to spend the next two weeks exploring the mountains of Colorado and some of our most beautiful national parks. 🙂
At the wedding, as usual, I wanted to get a nice photo of JR and I all dressed up.
But, as usual, we didn’t get to it until the end of the night when lighting was poor and my hair was frazzled.
I’m just hoping we looked a little more put together for the family photos…
After the wedding it was a crazy few days as we caught back up on things at the farm, got equipment ready, and chopped hay.
About midnight last night we finished covering the hay pile, and today the combo of heat, humidity, and little sleep is really making my eyelids heavy.
Busy weekends are so fun, and yet they make for so much catch-up. It’s always well worth it, and now I’m already starting to think ahead to my little sister’s winter wedding. The last of us five sisters to be married. The best for last, right?
