Soaking Up Summer

Have you ever been doing something and thought there’s nothing else I’d rather be doing right now? I felt that way a few times the other day.

I was outside in our yard playing fetch with Mavis and thought, man I just love this very moment of watching her play and enjoy life. Later on, I was pushing Sadie in her swing and thought, this is the absolute best. After playing, we harvested the first zucchini of the season from our garden.

That evening, Jimmy and I took Sadie swimming in our neighbor’s pool and it was so. much. fun. Afterwards, Sadie went down for a late nap and Jimmy and I ate dinner outside on our bistro table… alone! What a treat.

I’ve been trying to be very present and conscious during this sweet season. It’s such a blessing to be right where I am each and every day. I am so thankful to God for the many gifts He has generously given me.

How are you soaking up this season?



  1. Yay for getting to harvest some veggies from the garden! I’ve been trying to soak up the season by taking pictures and then putting my phone away to live the memories instead of just photographing them.

    1. It was so exciting to harvest those veggies! Amen to soaking up the season by taking some pictures and then putting the phone away to live the memories! It’s hard to do that, but it feels so wonderful!

  2. I love moments like this! It’s absolutely the best when you feel so present in the moment and can fully appreciate it for what it is. I feel like so often, even if we try, we oftentimes don’t feel the full impact of wonderful moments until they are gone. And yay for your first zucchini!! I bet it tastes amazing!

  3. I love this. Absolutely soak every moment of this up. Christopher and I were just having a similar conversation lately about how we are in such a sweet period of life. ❤
