    I apologize that it has been a while…like I said in an earlier comment…I have been recovering from thyroid surgery. However, I love your parties…and, I’m glad to be back 🙂

    I did, before surgery, get to enjoy a little excursion to Las Vegas with my husband. Since we aren’t gamblers, drinkers, etc., we had SO MUCH FUN visiting the AMAZING hotels, shows, riding some fun rides, zip lining down Fremont Street, riding in the gondola, etc. I, of course, paid for it for several days after we came back…but it was a FUN vacation!

    Then, since my surgery…I’ve simply caught up on some good reading…which is actually a good thing 🙂

    Now that I’ve been released to go swimming by my surgeon…that is on the agenda!

    Great to be back!!! Did you see my earlier comment where I nominated you for an award?

    Have an amazing weekend!

      Dear Erin

      Welcome back – I am SO glad that your thyroid surgery went well and you are back on the blogging circuit once more!

      I am so thrilled you had a chance to visit Vegas with your husband!

      Thank you so much for the awesome blog award! I hope you have an amazing weekend too! 🙂

  2. Thanks so much for hosting Ramona!

  3. Yogurt shops with a variety of flavors, fruit, and toppings are one of summer’s little pleasures! Thanks for hosting the linkup, & God bless!

      Yes! We recently discovered on that has a whole bar filled with every topping possible – it is our new hangout whenever we need a cool summer treat (and DEFINITELY one of summer’s little pleasures!)

    Thanks for hosting again!

    My little joys this summer-

    Good neighbors that let us use their pool. (Today was over 100 degrees!)
    Seasonal fresh fruit. It’s always so good in the summer!
    Movies with my kids.
    Sunday lunch with my husband.
    Finally finding a few minutes to start a new book.

    Even though our 4th of July in Colorado Springs was without fireworks, it was still wonderful to spend time with family. The Waldo Canyon Fire has made me appreciate so many little things – the beauty of nature and especially that my family is safe and I have a home to live in! I’m grateful to be able to sit out on my deck and still see natural beauty around me.

    • Create With Joy

      Yes! We also live in a region where, sadly, summer fires are the norm. When you live in the face of danger, it really does change how you view the little things on a day to day basis!

    Thanks for hosting – have a great weekend.

  7. Janice says:

    Oh how I love puzzles jigsaw ones mostly :))
    Happy Friday hope you enjoyed your 4th!

      I love jigsaws too but it’s been awhile since I’ve done a REAL one – my cats have taken over every flat surface in my home!

      There is a great online site called JIGZONE where I play (wrist permitting!) that is fun when you need a jiggy cyber break! 🙂

    I love the heat and the sun. I love the long days and being able to gather with my kids for story time or just chatting about stuff. Summer days means I can have a lot of great meals in my backyard.

  16. Evelyn says:

    Thanks for reminding me to take a moment to enjoy this summer’s life’s little pleasures:) I will! Thanks for sharing at Freedom Fridays.

  17. I am most enjoying being with my children. They are young and soon always away at school, so I get to enjoy them now.

    And just not having to rush everywhere all the time like during school.

    Have a good weekend!
