4th of July Celebration

 "Gather family and friends and rejoice in the pleasure of one another's company. It is a passing moment and the thread that weaves together the essential part of life." ~Mama Hen 
Fourth of July weekend was filled with family, friends, laughter and making cherished memories. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and our time together left us all feeling warm and joyful. It is gatherings like these that remind me of the essential part of living. Without family and friends there is not much to look back upon as our journeys move forward. Sadly, as we create our daily, weekly and monthly schedules we find our lives passing by in chunks. I have made it a point to allow Little Chick a lazy summer this year. No schedule and no daily plans. Just a simple summer filled with neighbors coming and going, swinging and jumping in the backyard, beach days and swimming at the pool when we feel like it. There is such peace in waking up to Little Chick's smile and an open day of simply being.

  2. Beautiful! I think a less-structured summer sounds wonderful. It's so good for kids to have free time without a schedule for simple creative play. xo
