4 a fun, bright summer!

It's August and we're well into the warm (ok, HOT HOT HOT) days of summer. We grew up in the Phoenix area, so we are used to the 100 digit temps - ha!  I actually do LOVE the heat.  Strange I know.  Now don't get me wrong, I love the air conditioning too.  But I love being outside, swimming (in warmer water of course) and enjoying the sunshine.  I would guess it's also my favorite time because it reminds me of all the summers our family would gather at our parent's house - swimming, eating, playing - joyful times and such good memories.

And it's especially my favorite fashion time.  I just love summer style - shorts, strappy sandals, sundresses, little skirts, beachwear, and bright colors.  Fun colorful jewelry too... it just makes you feel happy!

Guaranteed to make you happy too... here are our 4 HOT summer day fun times!

#1 - Relax and be silly on your summer vacation (there's still time!) wherever you go!
#2 - Spend time together at home with family or friends; run through the sprinklers, pop popcorn and watch a movie together, play card games (our recent favorite - golf) or a board game (Ticket to Ride), let the girls style each other's hair (don't know if I'll ever be brave enough to show those pictures! :) play badminton or croquet - it actually can be fun!  Or just sit around the table and tell stories.  Just love being together, making great memories!!
#3 - Make homemade ice cream and peach cobbler - yum!
#4 - Visit a cute, little (air-conditioned) local shop you've never been to (or revisit it)... for example, 4sisterShop in Cave Creek!  :)

Enjoy the rest of your summer ... wherever you are!
Love & Happiness, Donna (& Diana)
