My mother's beautiful barn has seen a lot of action while she was away all winter in California. This past weekend was no exception. My, was there a lot of commotion! But since we are now counting the hours to her arrival (with my nieces in tow), it was time to get things in order. While my son was at camp, my daughter and I got to work. Well, she mostly made art and ate snacks, but she did make a great companion until she had had "enough cleaning already, Mama!". But I think we're set. Fresh sheets and bouquets from the meadow will greet them. We can't wait! July is my favorite month of my favorite season. Between the juxtaposition of summering it up with family and the amount of writing I'm currently immersed in, something has to give. After spending several days away from this space, I know how much I miss you and can't just say "see ya in August". No way! My solution as of right now is: Instagram (my username is mayamade) I will be blogging visually (with a caption) for the month of July. I may surprise you with a book review, giveaway or tutorial, but mostly you will see snapshots of what we do best around here: s.u.m.m.e.r.! Barn frolicking is sure to be a frequent subject and I will definitely keep the tweeting up... so now's a great time to give me a follow. I know what you're thinking... it's still JUNE! Just getting ready...
Are you getting ready for any big summer plans or fun guests?
