Our good friend and neighbor, Phyllis, invited a small group of mothers and daughters over this morning to work on a little project. A little upcycling project, transforming our old T-shirts into something new and fun and pretty.
Phyllis has the gift of bringing people together. I think it's because she, herself, draws others to her and around her.
She and her husband Dennis have worked to create the most beautiful yard and garden. A welcoming and peaceful haven, with such a feeling of quiet serenity.
I went there to work on the project, but found that I spent more time wandering around with my camera. Soaking it all in.
How could I resist?
It was such fun being with her and visiting with the others.
Connecting with my neighbors. Forging friendships. Creating with my children. Surrounded with such beauty.
What better way to enjoy this fine midsummer's day.
