Summer of Love

After a full day of shopping, eating and a mid afternoon cocktail it was back to our house for drinks in the sunshine!  In the summer months it's light out until almost 10.  I love the long days and all the fun you can fill them with!  Peetee loved meeting all the peeps!
This lil bear had quite the evening too.
 Mazzy, Helga, Bella, G, Chris and I had so much fun just hanging out
 being silly
laughing and telling stories
 getting our buzz on in the sunshine
 making new friends
seeing the glory that is Helga in the flesh!
 Ate yummy Thai
 had some tasty cosmos
the boys even let me take this.
 I said goodbye to Bella as she was headed back home to Seattle.  It was so nice to meet a blogger that is fairly close by (about 3 hours).
 It was such a fun day, the kind you look back on fondly for years to come.  I'll cherish the time I had with such a wonderful group of people for a very long time!

Tomorrow I have a few more photos to share of our last night together and I have to show you all the amazing goodies Vix sent me.  She made me another pair of shorts!  I know!!!!  Plus a gorgeous super feminine dress that I just love.

Today Helga and G board a plan home, I miss them already.

What simply wonderful pictures! You are so right, you will always remember this special time.

On a seperate note, your garden looks fabulous, and is that your Jolly Roger flag or do have pirate neighbours? :)
