thankful for my summer

…especially right about now, because it is cold outside.  It is the kind of cold that makes me want to stay in bed for a very long time, and read all about my wonderful summer with my family.  Around thanksgiving, people often ask you to share what you are thankful for this year and when I actually hear myself saying out loud that I got to take off for three whole months and travel to Canada, camping all over with my precious family, I realize how incredibly fortunate I am, even if I wasn’t voicing that gratitude for every minute of those three months.  Especially those minutes when it was raining, and there were a lot of those.  But still.  The gift of that time, that trip, that great adventure is one we will all remember for years and years, and now in the midst of December crazy, I am loving remembering those slow, simple days of summer.

Here are a few of my favorites.
