Summer here we come...

I love, love, love Memorial Day Weekend! It's the kick-off to summer and what a beauty of a weekend we are having up in the great Pacific NW. Been up to lots of fun stuff lately...

hanging with the girlies...

baseball=summer!

More lovely girlie time...

Antique shopping...

Enjoying the Pike Place Market in Dowtown Seattle. My city is so amazingly beautiful...I love to go downtown and people watch and feel the vibe of this vibrant city...

I even found something I hadn't seen before... the gum wall at the Market Theater. Apparently, patrons stick their gum here before heading into the show.


Of course, I can't leave them alone... photographing more flowers





LB & I at the swap meet

End of the year field trips

First campfire of the season...

4 1/2 weeks until I graduate!!! Woo hoo! I got into the Bachelor program I had applied for and start at the end of September. I'm taking the summer off, except for a photography class, so am dreaming of fun things to come. I just have to make it through the rest of this quarter...

I bought a few domain names, am getting my website ready and portfolio completed so will have lots of new and exciting things starting at the end of June. I'm looking forward to spending time with Little Bob before she heads off to full-time school next year. She graduates from preschool in a few weeks and wants to know what we are going to do to celebrate. Too cute! Takes after her mama. I'm always looking for a reason to celebrate.

Hubs will be laid off at the end of June too. Boy... do we have lots of change coming. He's not too worried about it so I'm trying to take his lead and not be either but I have to say I have had a sleepless night or two. I'm just going to have faith that it will all work out. Usually does.

Other than that, I'm looking for the perfect summer drink. Any good recipes out there? Mojitos are still my drink of choice, and surely speak summer to me, but would love to find something new. Our local radio station is looking for the perfect summer song. I'm still addicted to Meaghan Smith and Ingrid Michaelson. Anything mean summer to you? Will Smith's summertime is an oldie but a goodie :)

Hope you are having a lovely holiday weekend. What are your summer plans?
