Summertime, where the living is easy…

Polka Dot Bikinis

It’s officially here….. Summer time! For us in the panhandle of Florida , summer is the longest season of the year. Time to relax, shed the excess clothing, and pare down our schedules in order to enjoy life a bit more. At my home, it is the time when life slows down. The heat can get oppressive, so sitting in the shade, with a cool drink and a fan is the usual . When I was growing up summer meant swimming at Johnny Boy’s landing, going to Torreya Park to picnic , eating watermelon sprinkled with salt, shelling beans and peas, picking blackberries for my mama’s wonderful cobbler were among the few delights we experienced . These days we get really lazy taking afternoon naps on a blanket in the grass,  going to the beach and just forgetting the cares of the world. I hope that you are having a wonderful summer so far, don’t forget to slow down, breathe in the smells of summer, and taste the delights of the fresh fruits and vegetables of the garden. xoxo Suz
