2010 // it was the summer of..

splitting baskets of fresh fruit with friends.
free samples & fresh flowers at the farmer's market.
discovering that rainier cherries are better than bing.

the 'cars' movie and scattered wooden railroad tracks.
going to the zoo and going to zumba class.
hot griddle pancakes, saturday smoothies and reading The Help.

sunshine & thunderclouds, matching my own moods.
drive-by photo shoots, a new camera and favorite flip flops.
loads of good mail, keeping in touch with friends (old and new).

read the full version right here. i'm guest posting for lucinda today!
now go remember & jot down what your summer days were filled with.

This is fabulous, Marta. I love your writing style. Read the whole thing on Luc Ends, too...

Thanks for pointing me towards your mum's blog series about living in England! I loved reading it. Am now a follower of hers as well.

PS: I might do my own summer 2010 post, if that's okay with you?

This is a perfect writing project for Labor Day weekend--encapsulating the summer past with highlights and snapshots moments. And it sounds like you'll be taking away some good memories :)
