Sweet Summertime Linky Party, Week One and Guest Post

Hi friends!  Today I am honored to be guest posting at Primitive and Proper, one of my all time favorite blogs!  Come join me over there as I confess to a secret love affair.

Onto Sweet Summertime…..
join me as I kick off a weekly celebration of summer today!

Share a glimpse into your adventures, amusements, happy happenings and simple pleasures each Friday.
Here are a few of the good things from our world this week.

the silver lining to missing haven….white water rafting with hannah, her girl scout troop & moms on the deerfield river in western massachusetts….oh so fun!

i also was able to go to a wine tasting with one of my besties thanks to being a haven no-show!

gifts from the garden

fresh summer blueberries for breakfast

the kids getting to be IN our friends' pool while it was filled up {with two tanks of water!}

a new tradition……mom & son birthday lunch with best friends - and birthday dessert of course!

the summer bucket list…..diet coke & mentos geyser

sean caught the photography bug

i downloaded the app camera+ to my old school iphone and i think it takes pretty good shots
ps * i'm in love with stone walls and old gates*

For stay-cationing, I think we're off to a good start!

What have you been up to??  I hope you are enjoying this sweet summer!

The whitewater rafting looked like so much fun! I might be going this fall. I ended up using last week's post since it summed up a lot of the things we have been doing so far this summer. Have a great weekend!

Love what you have been up to. We forget sometimes what our own towns/states have to offer. A simpler life is needed here in our country. Let's co-author a book!

Oh! I'd love a staycation. Though I don't think if we stayed at home, we'd get any vacationing done. There are just too many project here to distract us!

Looks like staying home from Haven was perhaps a blessing in disguise. The rafting looks fun, in fact all of your activities look fun! I need to step up my game on my photos...yours are all so good and clear. I need to figure out my camera.
