Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

Even though I’m in the middle of winter, it’s easy for my mind to wander off and think of summer. The sun high in the sky, the smell of flowers and grass, wearing my favorite dresses and eating ice cream. Last summer I did some amazing things in Australia. I like exploring a new area,…
