Here we are, summer at last! Unofficially, anyway. Memorial Day thru Labor Day. Longer days, dinner on the patio, a glass of wine by the lake, cruising on the boat, lounging by the pool, maybe a road trip or two... and so many events!
The season kicked off yesterday with my daughter's boyfriend's college graduation. A three hour drive on either end, plus the ceremony, moving out day, and a celebration barbecue made for a very long, but very happy day. Onward we go.. to Father's Day, high school graduation season, and the 4th of July!
