Summer in Full Swing

It’s been an interesting summer down here, and the season isn’t entirely over yet. One thing I must say I’ve enjoyed most about this summer is that we’ve had a steady influx of family come to see us since the end of May. I highlight this because in the past, it hasn’t always been this way. It’s usually our family traveling to see others. Needless to say, it’s a warm feeling to have folks want to come to where you’re from.

Here are some photos:


My aunt and uncle came to visit. Having them in my home was surreal, as well as beautiful!


My dad and his brother. These two had a lot of fun together and it made my heart happy to see them reunited after a long time.


Kennedy was born on my cousin’s birthday three years ago, and that makes them buddies. I enjoyed getting to watch him with her. 

home fireworks

Since fireworks are legal here in Florida, we got to host our own show for the 4th of July this year! Definitely beats the traffic of trying to get to other firework shows…



Once she got over the loud sounds, she enjoyed the sparkly display of the 4th, homestyle. 

We took Kennedy to see Finding Dory as her first movie this summer!
