Summer Memories

It's fall, y'all. But I have wonderful summer memories--our 28th wedding anniversary falling exactly on Sunday (you might remember my marriage and math post) so it was lovely to celebrate with Mass on this feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe. Dinner at Spice Palette, a new Indian restaurant followed by a harbor cruise.                                                                                             

Ravenel bridge, Morris Island (a bird sanctuary), Yorktown, gorgeous sunsets.

Walks on the beach, collecting shells, seeing marine life, celebrating birthdays, meeting family and friends for supper. 

We've been foraging--so lovely to have chanterelles on our walks. Garden has been bountiful--greens, okra, eggplant, tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. Lots of poblanos. Michael has been fermenting them and they make excellent sauces.

I love seeing the progress on St. Clare of Assisi right here on Daniel Island. Once it's finished, I imagine walking over for daily Mass and Adoration. Beautiful High Mass! I love how our little Latin choir is growing! So thankful to God for all His blessings!

Beautiful summer. Must be memories now, as fall is here, even in always-spring California. As always, love your photos.

Thank you for sharing my joy. Fall is definitely here but I wanted to remember our beautiful summer. So many times, it's the pictures on the blog that have survived our computer crashes.

The bounty of the garden is a wonderful blessing. It's fall in CT, but we are still getting some peppers and carrots. The roses like this weather, too.

The sunset photos are spectacular! Happy anniversary!

Carol, I love that my Michael has such a green thumb. Nothing beats the fresh flavor of veggies you pick yourself. You must have a pretty garden. The deer eat all the roses here.

Thank you, Barb! I do so love watching the sunsets from our back porch. I feel as if God paints the sky just for me.

Happy anniversary to you and your gardener husband. :) You both hit the jackpot for sure!
