summer time and the livin' is easy

ohh my best friend is home! she's leaving in a few weeks for her summer job and will only be home on select weekends so i had to quickly enjoy some summer time fun with her in ONE DAY. bummer, but also so fun.
we grilled, we picked flowers, we played cards, we laughed. just love her. she's been my best friend since 3rd grade when she moved here. i was mean and made fun of her at church for wearing a floor length dress with sunflowers on it. jokes on me now, cause i'd totally wear that dress today. i thought i was so cool, really i was just a mean butt. so glad she looked passed that fault of mine and we became best buds. turns out we're also somewhat related! somewhere down the line a great cousin uncle's dog's brother whatdoyouwhoseit and bam, we're relatives!
"what should i bring?"
"spices if you have them!"
"okay i'll load up my purse" 
spices for the meat. pills for my ailments. 


mmmm this is gunna be gooooood




done! well, a little over done.. turns out we're not actually grill masters. but it was still good and the wine was delicious. 

we took a walk and found these babies waiting for their mama to feed them. best friend was on watch while i got close enough to capture them.


i love her whole family. they are stuck in my heart forever. what a perfect day.
