Let's Pretend It's Still Summer Shall We?
I can't believe summer has already come & gone :-(
I've actually come to love the summers here in the South,
despite the humid days and high temperatures.
In late September & early October we were still having gorgeous 80 degree weather and both my sisters came out for visits separately.
At first I thought I would be bummed not having all 3 of us together at the same time,
but then I later really appreciated that I had them all to myself with some one-on-one time.
Kati came out for a quick 4 days and we jam packed as much as we could do of both relaxation and fun.
We squeezed in breakfast at The Hermitage Cafe,
coffee at Crema,
a trip to the Nashville Flea Market,
BBQ at Pucketts in Leipers Fork,
snuggled up at an evening Brentwood softball game with hot coffee,
and later that evening, a homemade Peanut Butter/Butterfinger Cheesecake.
You'll notice that Seven is next to the oven by my feet, Jeep next to him and Jason halfway between the dining and living room. Just a regular evening chillaxin at the Keith home.
Jeep & Seven wishing Kati would just drop something for them to nibble on.
We also enjoyed some delicious Jenni's Ice Cream at Hot & Cold in Hillsboro Village,
and played fetch with the boys in the backyard,
It was all so wonderful & went by way too quickly!
A week later, Kris came out for 10 days and we spent a few days in Nashville & then headed down to Destin, Florida for 5 days on a white sandy beach with blue/green water. It was ah-maz-ing!
Really, what more can I say? Who knew this gem of paradise was a 7 hour drive away?
To help pass the time and distract Kris from getting car sick, we listened to The Confession by John Grisham which we rented from Cracker Barrel. I wasn't a huge fan, but it did the trick.
I mean seriously, how cute is the huge 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo that we stayed at?
We cooked, we slept, we laid in the sun, we read and I tapped, tapped, tapped on my iPad.
It was heaven.
And now they're gone and in just a short time I'll see them again at Christmas - can't wait!
It already seems like forever ago!
