Dreaming of the long weekend...

< Fresh fruit, canopies on the beach, toes in the sand and waves, colorful umbrellas to lounge under, smores over the campfire, and freshly squeezed lemonade... yeah, summer!! >

It is hard to believe that Memorial Day is upon us.  Each year this time appears in my life these days, I am dreaming of summer vacation like my 6th grade self could not wait to be out of school!  With plans for barbecues outdoors, visiting with friends, spending time near the pool and/or lake, and celebrating the mister/s birthday, it is going to be a wonderful weekend to kick off summer!  Here are a few of my favorite summer items, with a splash of Memorial Day inspiration.  Hope you all have a wonderful, fun-filled, Memorial Day weekend!  Hooray for the long weekend and the long, summer-like days that are surrounding us!

< Red, white and blue decorations and treats- looking forward to a wonderful Memorial Day! >

< A few summer weekend outfits to provide you with outfit inspiration- pair any of these with flats or wedges and you'll be good to go! >
