The Still Life: Scenes of Summer

Hello lovely readers! It's been a while since I've posted...a long while (7 weeks actually, oh dear)! I could go into a long explanation about how crazy and hectic and bonkers my life has been, but I don't want to stress you out. So here are some happy pictures instead!

A painting of where my brother proposed.
Celebrating his engagement!
Dylan likes parties cause parties include cake.
The colors....oh my, the colors.

Three generations of McQuades on Father's Day
New beer brings cheer!
CSA watercolor inspiration.
Festive fiesta flags.

Whole wood-grain goodness.
Picked from the garden....
...and cooked with love.
Just look at that reflection!

Hydrangea season!
A perfect day for a farm visit.
Mommy's little zucchini monster.
Blueberry picking on my birthday.

A rare picture of me and my monkey.
Dylan's first marker drawing.
Crayola's smell like childhood...
...and Carvel cake tastes like it.

Ice cream makes D happy....
....so does my homemade pizza.
Back on my yoga mat for the first time in months.
Rainbow sprinkles are essential.

Magic Hat bottle caps are way better than fortune cookies.
Dylan's last day in his cast (P.S. He broke his arm!)
We decided to do Happy Hour nightly...best decision ever.
Big beautiful lilies are EVERYWHERE these days.

Too hot for clothes!
CSA goodness.
It's quick-pickle season.
What a fabulous mess!

Looking back the past 7 weeks I realize that despite things being stressful at times, I truly live a wonderfully joyous life. And now that things have calmed downed a bit I'm really looking forward to jumping back in where I left off, working on my art, cooking delicious new recipes with the bounty of locally grown summer produce, and sharing my adventures with you on this site!

I hope your summer has been going well and that you're enjoying all of the wonders this season has to offer...picnics and beaches and stone fruit and fireflies and so much more!
