Something that has become synonymous with summer in our house is WATERMELONS. The kids can wipe out an entire watermelon in no time flat.
It’s hard to embrace summer when the heat index reaches the 100s and every moment outdoors is just a countdown until you’ll next be in A/C. It makes me yearn for Fall… but I don’t want to wish away summer. So this weekend, we’ll use cookie cutters to make fun watermelon bites, plug in the slip’n’slide, fill some water balloons, and get outside… even if we’re back in the A/C before lunch time. We’ll make some summer memories, one watermelon at a time!
I’m ridiculously late to the June calendar game but here it is regardless. I thought, since I’m so tardy with posting, I could make another fun printable out of the design.
A couple years ago my friend and I wrote the most epic summer fun list. Living in the sunshine state means the list can stay active for 8 months out of the year. (#ilivewhereyouvacation) It involves s’mores, beach days with family, corn hole with neighbors, baseball games with friends and even a little gold leafing. You know, as you do. Every summer I look forward to checking off as many ideas as possible.
We’ve had a rocky start to our summer here in Orlando. There has been immeasurable tragedy. I don’t even have words. It seems trivial to even think of a “fun list” when so much pain and fear is in the air.
But hiding can’t be the solution… it’s loving our neighbors, praying for each other, praying for our city, claiming our city beautiful from the clutches of fear and despair, counting our many blessings. Living each day we are blessed with to the fullest.
Here’s a little list to get you jotting down ideas for your summer. May your days be covered in sunshine and full of the love and grace only our Lord can give.

April showers bring May flowers and this somewhat accidental design reminds me of dandelions. While the rains continue, things are blooming. The blessings always more plentiful when I focus on having a grateful heart. So this May I am grateful for creative time, family and friends pouring abundantly into my life, and for a Savior that makes it all possible.

Way back in 2013, I set a goal that I actually achieved! I created a new desktop calendars every month to give away on the blog. Recently I decided to resurrect that idea with printable calendars but I miss having a new wallpaper each month. I’ve been working on this design for a little while so I thought this would be a fun way to share. Enjoy!

Nothing says, “April is here” in Florida like the daily afternoon shower (read: torrential downpour). Luckily though, as the old saying goes, April showers bring May flowers so I’m thankful for this rain.
I’m thankful for all the rain. Especially the metaphorical kind.
This has been a season of downpour, full of abundant love and undeniable evidence of the awesome God that created it all. Some storms have been on the scarier side, lightening and thunder leaving me shaking in my boots at times, but always pointing me to deeper trust in the One who deserves all my trust.
So I am thankful for this rain.

Wasn’t January 1st yesterday? Where did this year go?
I’m always amazed when December rolls around and every year it seems to come faster. It came so quickly, in fact, that I seem to have skipped November all together! So, as a little Christmas bonus, you’ll find the November desktop below (sans calendar)… I couldn’t leave it to die in my archives. Enjoy!
October, I can’t believe you are already here, but I’m so glad.
I love the season of pumpkin everything. I love the (ever so slightly) cooler weather. I love the colors of Fall. I love permission to bake bread and cook lots of soup. Most of all, I love a reason to make you all a new calendar. Enjoy!
