Sweet Taste of Summer

Thank you to those who caught my post yesterday and sent me kind and encouraging words :) Today is going to be a better day. There are so many things that I am grateful and thankful for.

Yesterday afternoon my mother-in-law shared some sweet mangoes with our family. Growing up we had a large mango and lychee tree in our yard that often provided us with tasty snacks as well a great place to play. I remember spending hours in the lychee tree where my siblings and I claimed our own personal space, rigged pulleys and climbed like monkeys. Today we don't have a large yard now but we have one happy orange tree that is kind enough to produce delicious fruit despite my poor gardening skills.

Through my children's eyes, mango is what grows along the road in those big trees and lychee is the expensive and juicy fruit sold at the expensive pop-up stand down the street - "Fresh Cold Lychee!", the sign shouts. Because of the strong, sweet smell of ripe mango, my kids don't particularly care for it but they will go for lychee and watermelon on any day.

I am very pleased to be included in the colorful treasury that got me to indulge in the fun memories from my childhood. My watermelon charm is featured in this collection.

I can't express enough how much I love Softly Bear Paw but, with the product photo shown below, I hope you can see why I have an immense adoration for this shop.

Thank you for stopping by today. Enjoy your Friday and have a wonderful weekend.
