Summer As a Feeling

Hey there, friends.  I hope you’re having a great week so far.  We just got back into town on Sunday and I spent all day cleaning and puttering on Monday.  Puttering truly is my favorite way to spend my time — finding projects around the house, rearranging things, adding some things here, putting other things away…  It’s relaxing and inspiring and I’m so grateful that I have a house in which I can feel so at peace and, well, at home.  🙂  It’s an incredible blessing.

Summer is in full swing, which got me thinking of all of the things that feel like summer to me…  Woven textiles and bags; blue and white (of course); crisp and creamy ivories; freshly washed linens with an expensive laundry detergent (my favorite!); berries and homemade ice cream; beaches; flowers and fragrant basil plants; easy home-cooked meals eaten at the coffee table (or occasionally a nicely-set table); casual gatherings; time by the pool; morning coffee and a dreamy anticipation for cooler months ahead (Fall! Winter!).

As I’ve done in past seasons, I gathered up some inspiration pictures that made me think, Yeah, that is glorious summer.  This is what summer feels like to me…
