Embracing Summer

Yesterday I ventured across the street to look at Princeton's Art Museum.....Oh my I can't believe this collection is right across the street.  Monet, Cezanne, Degas, Manet and Van Gogh and I only ventured into 3 rooms.  I will share some postcards of the works I saw on Postcard Friendship Friday.....The museum is free and I only had an half an hour, and I am going to try to venture over as much as I can.
I walk by scenes like this almost everyday and took the time to finally get close up and take some pictures.
I took some time to finally take a picture of the store.  I love the sunflowers!!!  Welcome summer.  Today is a beautiful sunny Sunday.
This is where I will be embracing summer today......right here in the backyard.  I took this picture yesterday.  Whenever my husband and I utter the words of selling this house---we get some different birds hanging out in our backyard.  Can you see it in front of the ladder--I don't even know what it is.  But, whenever they appear I feel they are here to make me appreciate all that I have.  Glen sided the shed this summer.....I need to add some flowers......maybe today......maybe not......I am looking forward to soaking in all the sounds and sights of summer in my backyard today.......Those chaise lounges are calling my name......I hope you get the chance to embrace all that summer brings your way today!

Geralyn, what a calm backyard to enjoy your day in. Float and dream. The store front looks fabulous! I think the bird is telling you, take it slow, don't fly away too soon. You have lots of change going on as it is. Great location to be able to stroll from Paper Source to the Art Museum. Count your many blessings, you deserve the best. Hugs, Pam

I love the store front of your new place...the ceramic tile is sooo cool! You are so lucky to be across from the museum and it's FREE! yay! I would live there everyday.
As for you. If I'd have known you had a pool, I'd be floating around in it all day...I could even be your "pool girl" haha! Wait...I forgot I live across the country from you! So now I'm mad you are teasing me...it's so dang hot over here!
You and hubby will make the right decision at the right time. Just don't forget to enjoy the moment now!
everything vintage
