Heart’s desire in your own backyard

The sweet, unscripted anticipation of a summer morning. We love travel, adventures and exploring our world. Yet sometimes, we find pure joy in our own backyard. Especially on summer days, with plenty of fresh air, sunshine, water — and a little ice cream.

(c) to Dorothy: …”If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own backyard; because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with.”

Just add water.

Darling neighbor Abby.
Root beer floats (secret ingredient: pinch of anise blended into the ice cream)
Ah, our little Caroline ...

There’s offiicially 1 month of summer left. Find some joy in your own backyard!
