(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Summer Sisters

This is a bit late in the day but it’s still Wednesday, right?

It feels like we went from winter to summer without so much as a crisp spring day to show for it. Last year was pretty much the same except that summer came in March and didn’t depart until November.

Seeing as there was snow and hail in mid-Michigan while we were on vacation last week in Cape Cod, we were so happy to come home to 70’s and sunny.

It’s been so hot that we already have the AC on.

But I love it. Love the warmth of a midday sun. Love the rich saturated clear blue sky. Love those fluffy white cotton ball clouds that pass by every so often. Love to walk barefoot in the soft green overgrown grass. Love the cool dark shade of a big ole maple tree.

And these two?


They love it too. I’m really looking forward to their first summer of playing together.

They are loving their bubbles and sidewalk chalk and tricycles and walks to the playground and generally being silly together.


And I am looking forward to a summer full of this sweet girl…


and her sweet smiles.


And can’t wait for another summer with this amazing young lady and her warm and loving side…


and her pensive and shy side.


And sisters.


I am once again enchanted and in love with every second of watching their relationship blossom. Sisters and BFFs.


Though we were having a terrible, awful, no-good, very bad day, we still managed to get this lovely family shot.


A big loving shout out to our amazing photographer Bobbi Rattai who always makes all of us look so good. You can find her on FB HERE

and online HERE.

Hope you had a great Wednesday!! Come back soon…vacation photos will be up Thu and Fri!!

    They’re so pretty! I haven’t visited in a while, so it’s fun to see how much they’re growing up :) And how different your two girls look! I think Cedella looks so much like you and Isora looks like Michael. Isn’t it weird how that happens?

    I’m dying. So cute!! I love those girls so much. They remind me of you and I when we were babes. We should do a side-by-side photo comparison one of these days. You and Michael make a handsome couple. Everyone at work thinks you guys look like the photo that comes with the frame!

  5. These photos are gorgeous! Makes me think it’s time for the Arends family to get it together for some family photos. I love seeing Cedella and Isora together – they will love these pictures so much when they are older. And I’m dying over Isora’s hair flower!!
