Ah, Summertime

LeeAnne Wright's paintings really express my love for summer. One version of my perfect summer day starts with a dip in the pool.The warm summer sun dries my skin.
I will eat this big cheeseburger that The Boy grilled.
And then I'll go shoe shopping. I'm really wanting some espadrilles.
And of course, some colorful mary janes and peep toes.
I really wish that I had some sort of swimming, cooking out, and shoe shopping planned for the weekend, but as the wedding is only 6 weeks away (eek!), I will be working on wedding stuff. I promise more details next week. What are your weekend plans?

P.S. In addition to her Etsy shop, LeeAnne has many more paintings on her website. Her images of farmscapes, streetscapes, interiors, and everyday items have such a warm, happy feeling about them.

P.P.S. I'm having my first blog giveaway next week. I'm so excited!

It may be June 5, but here in Sunny So Cal., we're on our third day of rain. So much for summertime! Pretty soon, though, it'll be sweltering, so I'm enjoying it.

We have a birthday swim party to go to tomorrow, so hoping for some clear skies (though the pool is heated - oooh la la!)

Can't wait for your first giveaway!

Oh...so much fun planning the wedding...can't wait to hear what's brewing. I think a little shoe R&R would be ok even in the midst of planning...don't you?
