In celebration of the last day of summer, I wanted to share one of my favorite photos. I love it for three reasons:
1. The colors-so bright and happy, it makes me feel great inside. Plus it made my deck one of my favorite spots this summer.
2. My dad made that bench. He used to build things before he got sick, and he had finally had enough energy last winter to make three benches: one for myself, one for my mom and another for sister for Christmas. I painted mine bright blue.
3. The pink and purple flowered plant was a housewarming gift from a family friend, and the daisy is from home. Believe it or not, I actually kept them both alive all summer. That’s an accomplishment in itself for me.
On a side note, I had to get rid of the flowers this week and move the bench inside. Cooler weather is on the way, and Fall is finally here. I can’t wait! Maybe I’ll find some fun Fall decor to replace? Happy last day of summer!
