Summer Stillness

Life surely hasn't slowed down simply because the season changed and the temperatures rose, which leads me to wonder-- whatever happened to the lazy days of summer?

While the breakneck pace of life will continue this weekend, I am hoping to find moments of stillness and calm in the midst of the go-go-go. I hope your weekend holds those same quiet moments too.

i wish the temps would rise here. it's been such a cool chicago summer. i don't get it. i've never known such a cold july. it's crazy!

but i love these hammocks, and whenever i'm in one, it feels like heaven. they had several on the beach in jamiaca where the hubby and i went for our honeymoon. i could use one of those again. :)

thanks for your sweet words and encouragement on my etsy post.

have a great weekend, courtney!

If you find the lazy hazy days of summer let me know! It's been crazy but fun around here...thank goodness I live 8 mins from the beach! Great pictures! (I'll totally count you in for the lake house...ha ha)

I'm so glad it's not just me! Though I hope we both feel better soon. A day in a hammock would surely help - these images are delectable.

Have a slow weekend Courtney

I love hammacks. They just give off that cool, relaxed vibe. We have one in the backyard and the kids love it!

I just recently started my Blog. I'd love for you to come by for a visit if you get a chance and say hi!

Have a great weekend,
Aimee

These photos are great--perfect for lazing around on the weekend. Which is exactly what I'm doing today. Hope you're having a great summer too!

I'm wondering the same things! I have deadlines and events and a to-do list a mile long. I thought this was summer?? AND I'm not even working right now! But life is good and I'm taking the change of pace to mean things are picking up for everyone, which has to be good news...right? Hope all is well!

Oh how I wish I had a hammock right about now. Great summer photos! Hope you had a great relaxing weekend!

alissa said...

abigail said...

hammocks!
such beautiful photos.
We have an old cotton hammock that I love hanging out in. it's one of those hammocks that wraps you up like a tamale, and I LOVE it.

hope you had a great weekend! I can't tell you how much I look forward to your weekly comments.

You are so mean to me, sitting here in freezing Winter weather dreaming of long spring and summer days on hammocks! :-) x Jayne

Oliveaux said...

I am looking forward to those long lazy summer days. A hammock would be perfect! Just around the corner for us in the southern hemisphere! Although our winter weather is just like summer for some. Ax

Hammocks! This reminds me of being a little girl (like in my picture) and swaying back and forth in the breeze in the crisp summers in Michigan. Thanks for those neat pictures! You made my day!

Des said...

This is going to sound ridiculous, but that's okay. Hammocks stress me out. lol. I have terrible balance so I can never really get comfortable in a hammock. So I'm always either in a chair or stretching out on the ground.

I'm craving for a hammock right now!
