on: girl's nights and sabbaths.

Mondays are my Sabbath-days, and I'm taking full advantage this morning. I made use of the raging thunderstorm this morning by not getting out of bed until after nine. And I think I'm going to make some homemade minty limeade with the huge bowl of lovely limes left byMaureen and her friends before they go all gooey. Yummmm! Limeade and mint are two of my absolute favorite-st things about summer; so the obvious thing to do is combine them!

This past Friday night was one of the best evenings I've had all year. A bunch of girlfriends and I, who all happen to love taking pictures, and have a fondness of Patty Griffin, went out to the nearest prairie reserve for a "Burgundy Shoes Photo Shoot." All pretty dresses, and cameras, and accessories, and boots, and wildflowers. It was cloudy and overcast all day, but the skies broke into the most beautiful sun, Sun, SUN! for our excursion by early evening that it was nearly impossible to take a bad picture. Here are some of my favorites, and you can see all of the hundreds of pictures taken between us here.

Jess- I'll be emailing you the recipe with some tips. But a warning, you may have to start buying limes in bulk! And don't you worry about the blogging thing, I think I told you about how bad it's gotten for me (like reading 50 posts a day...oh geeeeez!)

And Bethany- H yes, we're dang cute!
