Tribute to Summer

Anyone else going to be sad to see Summer go? 
Like, bawling your eyes out, sad?

You see, we don't have a lot of gorgeous, sunny, weather here in Oregon.  So when it comes around, I rejoice!  And when it goes away . . . well, I cry. 

Thank goodness for my beloved camera.  I can capture these brief, Summer moments, and cherish them all year long. 

My tribute to Summer 2011 in photos  . . .


Days of play


Of exploration


Of peacefulness


Of welcoming a new, precious blessing.


Days of change.


Of celebration,

and beauty.

Days of creating,

of competition


and true enjoyment.


Days of sculpting,






and observing.

Of truly living life.

We had one of the best summers yet!  How 'bout y'all?


I'm linking up {FINALLY!} with Alicia's Crazy Days of Summer.  Something I've been meaning to do all Summer, but . . . you know, life just got in the way.
