this shop. The handcrafted signs, prints, and decor items are all so gorgeous!
"Summer is my favorite season (with Fall as a very close second). Every other Friday night during the summer, we meet up with a group of friends and their children and have a picnic on the beach while watching the sunset. The kids build sandcastles, the adults throw the football or frisbee and we all just have a great time fellowshipping. Another activity that I love is our family bicycle rides. Whenever my husband has a week day off, we take our bicycles (kids in tow!) and stroll along our county trail, making sure to stop by the local famous Ice Cream Shoppe on the way home." --Brittany of Ellison Made
