Lemonade Glass

There’s nothing like a cold glass of lemonade during this time of year. I love sitting in my backyard with a cold drink and a good book during these warmer months.

Fuji Film Camera with Calendar and Flowers

Fuji Film cameras are so fun to use. If you’ve never used one, I recommend taking some photos with one. Your photos will come out so unique and beautiful. Plus, the pictures will look great as a part of your home decor.

Sliced Watermelon

Watermelon feels more like a summertime fruit to me, so I would probably switch the watermelon slices for cherries, lemons or strawberries.

Summer Doodles

These doodles really remind me of the summertime. While we do have our warm days in Washington state during this time of year, we definitely haven’t reached swimsuit weather just yet. This May spread is probably more suited to someone who lives in sunny California.

Coffee with Leaves and Hats

Here in this states, it’s usually getting warmer during this time of year and trees and flowers are just starting to bloom. You can swap the hot coffee with iced coffee and the green leaves for colorful flowers.
