These Summer Nights {a little video}

There is just something so magical about summer nights.  The warm air heavy with fragrance.  The golden light filtering through the trees. The feeling that it's okay if we stay up a little bit past bedtime because we will miss these nights when school starts again. Everdeen has been learning how to water the plants/me/Martin/the sidewalks :) She's getting the hang of it.  Last night as she was watering she decided to make it rain from the sky! We let her play, knowing very well it was waaay past her bedtime. We laughed and watched as she was so happy and content playing with the hose. This is what simple, carefree, childhood memories are made of! Happy summer nights everyone!

Soaking in the Hours

My twin sister headed back to Florida yesterday and as always, goodbyes never get easier. So we count down the days until winter when we will be reunited again!

We soaked in every moment we had together and ended her week here with a hike at Eagle's Nest! The last few times we've been has been in the dead of winter so it was nice to go when the flowers are blooming and the grass is a bit more green! This state of ours is so beautiful. Sometimes I forget to look around...I mean really look and take it all in :)
