Ah, the smells of a cool summer night is floating in to my living room as I type. A snoring 3-month old is bundled and snoring in a bassinet at my side. A cup full of ice and lemonade drips condensation on the piles of calendar pages and notebooks full of ideas for the summer we are planning here at FancyLittleThings.
Summer. For New Yorkers, it is the 12-weeks we look forward to all year. And this is really one of the most beautiful weeks of the entire summer. Perfect temperatures. Low humidity. The roars of the season’s first thunderstorms. Peonies. Rhododendron. Iris. All in full bloom.
This summer, the thing I look forward to most, the thing my heart needs, the thing I want to feed into my family and into yours….
The family of ladies here at FLT, we are all embracing adventure for the summer. A three-month long theme, a challenge for each of us to embrace the moments that the summer brings. To act spontaneously. To live fully. To love wholeheartedly.
Our theme verse for the summer captures the spirit of adventure….
“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead…” Phillipians 3:13 NLT
So, are you looking forward to summer? To what lies ahead? Here is what lies ahead for Fancy Little Things this summer…
- LET’S GO! – An Adventure Series The ladies of FLT have vacations and trips and adventures right down the block and in the backyard that we will be sharing with you throughout the season. Be on the lookout for our “Let’s Go” posts and even better, share YOUR adventure too! Submit your summer adventure here and we’ll be selecting several to be full featured posts!
- MY STORY FOR GOD’s GLORY! We kicked this series off a couple of weeks ago and will continue it throughout the summer. Every Monday and Thursday you can come and hear the amazing stories of how God has and still is moving in the lives of our ladies.
- ME & MY HOUSE REINTRODUCTION! “Me & My House” is inspired by Joshua 24:15 and is about all things FAMILY! Join us every other Saturday this summer for posts about fun kid activities, parenting, maintaining a home, entertaining friends, and of course, igniting a spirit of adventure for you and yours.
- GUEST WEEK!! We’ve had SO many wonderful ladies who are now former authors of FLT or previous guests and we are thrilled to be inviting some back to share during our guest week from July 29th to August 3rd. Come back and say “hello” to our old favorites and see what new things they have to share.
And because all this fantastic-ness takes some planning, designing, scheduling, messaging and posting, we are going to start our summer with a bit of a break. You won’t see any more from us this week, but come on back next Monday as we kick off our Summer of ADVENTURE!!
