Summer didn't start until July this year.
As we were driving home this weekend from our last "summer" hoorah,
I felt overwhelmed with gratitude.
I feel grateful for the ability to experience beauty, the journey (as well as the destination), long-filled days of sunshine, great bodies of water and magnificent mountain-sides. I feel grateful for my husband and the time we spend together in these places. We share a similar appreciation and wonder. It is always so liberating and spiritually regenerating.
With such a late start to summer, we have definitely taken advantage of the time and space available. We know this has been a gift - just for us.
