Summertime...and the living is easy.
Is it easy? As we strive to plant and weed our gardens, trim the bushes, mow the lawns, clean the deck and patio furniture,
sweep the driveways, walkways and porches...and yes, still keep up with everything indoors...are we living easy?
I am telling myself that it is not just a time to do more work. It is a season to do more sipping ice tea, reading a book on the deck,
walking in the park, riding a bike, playing frisbee with the corgis, running through the sprinkler with the children, roasting marshmallow in the fire pit and relaxing.
Summer is a time to slow down and just "be". If we live a frantic lifestyle we lose ourselves. Easy living isn't about lazy living, it's
about smelling those roses and living in the moment.
PHOTO: In the fashion of living easy, the necklace is a simple rubber cord with a Petoskey Stone, Sterling Heart Charm and Sterling Initial. I wear this type of necklace almost everyday. A good choice for the beach, the park....and even when I'm in the garden pulling those weeds.
Don't forget to stop and enjoy your life right now.
