Bunches of berries at one of the first outdoor Farmers Markets of the season

We got back from our European excursion a few weeks ago to find that summer is finally in the air here in Chicago! Though I’ve been a bit absent online lately, I promise to organize and post pictures of the many beautiful places that we visited ASAP. But first, a few glimpses of what we’ve been up to since our return, minus the jetlag-fueled marathons of Duck Dynasty…

Morning joyrides in our unexpected but completely necessary new hybrid car
Making progress in my garden plot--details and updates to come soon
Rainbow at dusk on our drive back from a weekend trip to Wisconsin
Flower-lined afternoon walks in the neighborhood
Joint wedding shower brunch, with red accents for one bride-to-be and purple for another
Tools for a desperately needed self tanning session
Vintage cowboy boots hiding under my friend's wedding dress on the dance floor
Lots of cleaning, rearranging and finding any excuse to display fresh peony blossoms
