Summer Nights

Don't you just love the late summer nights?
I love the fact that at 8:30pm the sky looks like this!

Sweet Summertime!

Nothing spells summer like a fresh, juicy watermelon

and a good ol' seed spitting contest!

20 years ago today

this little guy came into my life... and made me a big sister!
and I've been sharing my candy ever since!
Happy Birthday Austin!
I'm so lucky to have you as my little brother!
Hope you have a wonderful day!

Somewhere Near Water!

I have to admit, I'm a little sad this week.
Maybe you'll understand why after seeing these pictures!
Not only did my best friend get married this past weekend,
but we also spent four long days here...
South Padre Island, Texas!
We did some fishing...
and enjoyed the perfectly, hot Texas weather!
I also got to see my dream house on the water...
(Yes, Please & Thank you!)
It was a perfect weekend!
And I'm already ready to go back!

When that summer sun starts to beatin' down
And you don't know what to do
Grab your swimming trunks
Ice up that old igloo
Drive until the map turns blue

All you really need this time of year
Is a pair of shades
And ice cold beer
And a place to sit somewhere near
- Brad Paisley

The theme this week at YouCapture was "water".
