I don’t know if it’s because it reminds me of my childhood and that “school’s out!” feeling, or if it’s something deeper, but summer feels different in so many ways. There is just something about the spirit of this season – even for those of us who have long been out of school – that makes it special. It’s like everyone let’s out a collective sigh and just relaxes a little bit more.
Hello there friends, and welcome to another French Country Fridays! It’s been a busy (and hot!) week here at Maison de Cinq and I’m so looking forward to the weekend and celebrating Father’s Day! Today I’m planning to do no work and just have a nice lunch with the hubby and maybe sneak in some antiquing (always a good idea, right?) 😉 And of course, Sunday will be a day all about him and he gets to pick whatever he wants to do for the day. And no, it never involves antiquing, or any kind of shopping for that matter, haha!
As I’m sure some of you know, my backyard has been in the midst of a remodel for almost the entire past year. We spent last summer remodeling the pool, and then most of the fall finishing the landscaping. And though I haven’t revealed the entire project yet, today I’m sharing one of the newest additions – my new outdoor chandeliers!
Is it summer where you are yet? It’s definitely arrived here! We went from our gloomy May and June mornings to it being almost 90 degrees today! And believe me, I’m not complaining. I’ve been wanting some sunshine and warmth for months now, so it feels delicious. (Though when you speak to me in August, I might not be feeling quite as happy about it, haha!) 😉
Hi friends and welcome to another week of French Country Fridays! This week has gone by so quickly! How about for you? I’ve been busy adding some blue and white and other summer touches to the house for my summer home tour that’s coming up next week! And we’re still working on getting the backyard ready as well. I’m just waiting on furniture now!!
