Summer Time in Atlanta

A little late, but Happy Summer!

So many different colored flowers have popped up in the last few weeks.  We have even opened our windows on a few breezy days to hear the cicadas.  It reminds us of our travels in Japan during the month of August where the cicadas were very abundant.  Here though, they make a different sound, a definite mark of the start of summer.

Luis and I have been busy getting things together for my mom and aunt’s visit and preparing for our first Fourth of July celebration here in Atlanta. Still trying to decide on whether or not to watch the fireworks from Centennial Olympic Park or from our parking lot deck since we live only a few blocks from the park.

I made a test run of some lemon poppy muffins while we worked on a few projects around the house that have been put on the back burner for the last few months.  The muffins came out great and perfect for the summer.

Speaking of  summer, the summer sunsets are amazing here.  Until tomorrow for our hallway project, have a great summer Sunday!
