sunshine, hula hoops, no homework, hot cars, boats on the lake, sunscreen, bike rides,
new freckles, Popsicles, poolside shrieks, backyard bar-b-ques...
All of it, a part of summer's magic.
But, the real magic of summer is time.
Time to travel, to take long walks in the twilight.
Time to take the kids to a drive in, time to catch fireflies.
Time for Slip 'n Slides and ocean breezes, for vacations and relaxation.
And, for me, uninterrupted time to read is the most precious gift. Summer
is full of long days and quiet nights just perfect for curling up
with a book. If you are looking for a great
summer read, you might try
Bridge of Scarlet Leaves.
It's a love story, set in an intriguing, difficult time in American history. More
than a love story, it's a life story. A story of triumph, dedication, family, forgiveness,
but most of all LOVE.
