Gearing Up for Summer

Digging around in the couch cushions is not giving me the cash I need to fund the ice cream my kids and I plan to eat this summer. Cappuccino crunch is my favorite–what’s yours?

In Pennsylvania, we have looooooonnnng seasons of snow and ice, cold weather and general crap you cannot go out into without wearing a parka. I always say that if you live here, you’d better love your winter coat because you’ll be wearing it up to 9 months of the year. (I needed it the other night in the ball field!)

So when warmer weather rolls around, I want to be outside. Which is why I’m in the midst of creating a bigger patio and fire pit! If you don’t follow me on Facebook, you won’t see the updates, so I thought I’d share here too!

I can’t wait to share more pics with y’all as I work! I’d love to kick off Memorial Day weekend with a nice fire and a cookout! Then I’m going to sit out there every night that I can and just stare at the stars. Or fireflies. 🙂

What do you do to embrace summer? I’d love to hear from you. Comment below!

    the biggest thing I do in summer is yard work. I love being on the riding mower and just forgetting about everything else. I also spend a lot of time on my back patio which looks out over the pond. Watch the squirrels and rabbits and deer, and of course the lovely mosquitos.

    Please keep sharing the pictures on this site because I don’t do FB and this is the only place I can view them.
