My Favorite Summer Evening...

I am accepting Mr. Brian's tag to reveal my favorite summer evening. My favorite place to be in the summer is home. We live on a lake that I love in a home that I am completely devoted to. I love being outside and enjoying swimming, gardening and spending time with our neighbors who are some of our closest friends.

We spend a lot of time out on our brick patio. We have a fire pit and roast marshmallows. At night it is lit with candles and other patio lights. I just love it. I could sit there all night long with a glass of wine and the company of my husband or anyone else who happens to come over. There are no reservations at our house in the summer. We are guaranteed company, we just have no idea who it will be. The more the merrier!


Another of my favorite summer activities is spending time with these girls. I have known them since they were born except for Veronica in the white bikini top (she was 2 when I met her). She is my secret choice to marry Zachary. Shhhh...he'd freak out to hear that, but all mothers dream don't they? Tyler's in the photo though, he calls the girls his chicks and this is his 'chick magnet' pose.



That's it, this is my favorite place and anything that goes on around here is my favorite activity.

If you have not had the pleasure of getting to know Mr. Brian, I encourage you to do so. He is a darling man who lives life to the fullest and loves the people around him. His blog is 'All in a days work'.

Ok, I tag Becky B., Terry, Cougchick, Doris, Jonni, Norma, Headmeister, Secret Agent, Connie and Carolyn.

WOW - I have NOTHING exciting or as fabulous as your post to report about my favorite summer evening! But I'll try and remember something that will suffice!

Mark and Rebecca said...

Oh, I want to live near you!

Jonni & John said...

What a wonderful place to be. Like I have said before - I wish we lived closer to one another, of course if we did, you would never be able to get rid of me. I would just live on your patio (lol).

Tyler looks very happy to be in the middle of that group of girls...Sweet.

I will post mine when I get to work.

Hugs,
Jonni
