When we reflect on the meaning of love, we see that it is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year.
It brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul.
 - Billy Graham

Nothing makes me happier than to spend long warm summer evenings working on my plot at the community garden near my house.

Chatting with fellow gardeners, exchanging tips and fresh produce or helping each other out by sowing rows of spinach seeds.

Creating friendships and filling our hearts with love.

Meet my travel companion; my Baggu backpack. 

I already took it everywhere with me this summer. It is so lightweight and sturdy compared to other backpacks that I had in the past. Perfect for traveling but also for everyday activities. Backpacks are my favorite. They keep your hands free when taking pictures or eating ice cream (you can guess what my favorite summer activities are).

lilac7 lilac6 lilac10 lilac12 lilac9 The day before I left for Portugal I was feeling a little sad.

The lilacs were starting to bloom and I was going to miss it. Sometimes we let foolish things get hold of our emotions. Thinking back I feel absurd and terribly guilty for the way I felt.
There I was, moping around when in a few hours I would be watching the sun rise across the Atlantic with my dearest mum by my side. These are the moments that count. We often forget.

It has been some time since I sat down and wrote something on here.
Life has been a bit overwhelming these last few months. A needed a breather.

Luckily, the warm summer breeze is slowing down the pace of everyday life and is bringing some exciting things to look forward too.

Also, it turns out I didn’t miss lilac season after all. Nature’s timing is always right.

Come a little bit closer, hear what I have to say. Just like children sleepin', we could dream this night away.
Harvest moon - Neil Young
