This time of year is truly my “bliss.” Warmer temperatures, sun-kissed skin, the sound of little boy giggles filling the air as Harrison “woes down da hiw” (rolls down the hill) with his daddy. We spray hoses, take frequent “ABB” (ATV) rides visit our neighbor’s horses, and make nightly visits to our blackberry bush in hopes of spotting that first delicious fruit. It's absolutely perfect. Summer evenings on the "farm" are exactly as I envisioned them to be. We play outside as often as possible, and push back bedtimes in order to soak up every precious moment of daylight before the sun goes to sleep for the night.
Oh, sweet summer, you are good for my soul.
