Wordless Wednesday (Breaking Out of the Egg Edition)

A bird has built a nest in our garage (of all places):

Her baby is now with us and growing every day:

My “fledgling” isn’t nearly this helpless anymore.
Today we celebrate her 16th birthday!
Happy birthday, Tenley!
“I’m youth, I’m joy, I’m a little bird that has
broken out of the egg.”
– Sir James M. Barrie

Summer Daze Fun Photo Party

The Summer Daze Photo Party is the creation of Kristi from Live and Love Out Loud, Alicia from Project Alicia, and Rebecca from Bumbles and Light. The rules are pretty lax (it is summer after all!). Feel free to link up your summer images June 15 through July 20. The instructions are here.

Wordless Wednesday (Smile of Light Edition)

This is not going to be a summer of long, complicated, expensive trips.
That doesn’t mean I can’t find some summer fun and relaxation in the mix.
While Tenley and the other dancers watched La Nouba at Downtown Disney recently, I chilled at a nearby restaurant and enjoyed Chilean wine and a good book.
It was a night for being in the background while the girls bonded.
This summer’s moments may come in smaller increments, but I will
treasure them no matter what.
