Favorite Moments Of Summer

The prompt I chose for Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop this week is:

4.) List your top 6 favorite summer moments so far.

We’ve had several family gatherings this summer, which of course, are always special. But today, I’m focusing on some simple moments of summer.

1.) A butterfly on one of my Sweet Williams. My grandma always grew these flowers, and my mom loved butterflies.

2.) My grandmother also grew gladioli. This is a photo of one of mine, taken during sunrise.

3.) After several dry days with 90+ degree temps, rain was a welcome sight.

4.) Although every moment spent with my “babies” is special, they’re even more beautiful during golden hour.

5.) You know that seeing “my” horses on the Outer Banks would be among my favorite moments of summer.

6.) And although I love waking in time to catch the sunrise, there’s something peaceful and calming about a sunset.
