summertime and the livin’s easy…

with the start of summer upon us and independence day just around the corner, the timing is certainly appropriate for our new web theme – americana picnic.  imagine a hot summer day, throwing cutoffs and a tee or a sundress over your bathing suit and heading to the park for a picnic with friends.  a blanket spread across crisp green grass, the plucking of guitar strings and the smoky smell of barbecue wafting through the air.  cooling off with a quick dip in the lake, letting the warm rays dry your sun-kissed skin.  picking flowers to weave into a headband and eating strawberries and ice cream. telling stories as the sun goes down and catching fireflies in humid starlit skies.  it is a collective memory that we all share…the sounds and scents of summer.

here is some imagery that this trend brought to mind…

  1. Love these wonderful images, especially the last one. My husband and I just spent last weekend on a blanket at the park with friends eating watermelon and blueberries, and catching little fireflies.
    I just came across this blog yesterday, and I’m so glad I did. So far it has been such a collection of all my favorite things :) Keep it up, ladies. You do a wonderful job capturing all the beautiful little things in life.
