Unexpected treasure discovered on a recent morning walk


Hello Summer (officially)!

Although we’ve been experiencing weather here in southern Kentucky more like the dog days of summer than the first bloom of summer, I’m still greeting it with a huge grin, because summer!

I’d love to hear what’s making you laugh or think this week!  Join me in the comments to keep the conversation going!
