The Art of Summering Invitation


"There's nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it's sent away." -Sarah Kay


There is an art to summering: 
Sun simmering,
Heat chasing,
Waves churning-
Iced tea sipping
Porch sitting,
Fan swaying-
Sparkler swooning,
Sky sizzling,
Sunsets blazing-
Friends visiting,
Quiet chatting,
Babies playing-
Family planning,
Trip taking,
Cameras shooting-
Endless choosing,
Daily relaxing,
Summer happening
