Kayaks, Asparagus, and the Smell of Vacation

This week's Three Beautiful Things:

1.  A couple mornings ago, I spotted a solitary kayaker in the middle of a lake.  It was a warm morning, perfect for being on the water.  The sun sparkled on the water's surface, and despite the noise all around me, the whole world was silent for just a moment. 

2.  I am still enjoying good, fresh asparagus, and I'm so excited that the big boy will eat it now too.  My favorite way to prepare?  Roasted, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt.  Yum.

3. The smell of sunscreen on the boys in the morning makes me think of vacation instead of the fact that I'm headed to work.


  1. Sunscreen has that amazing sensory quality doesn't it? Makes me think of summer beaches, my childhood and my kids all wrapped up in one. Love summer... L x

  2. I swear to you I am eating grilled asparagus at this very minute as I surf the web! It is definitely one of the best things about summer. :) Thank you so much for your thoughts on my poll today. It's really helpful!

  3. I love the smell of sunscream too...Thank for the asparagus idea..I love it and I will try it for sure!
    Have a fantastic day, sweetie!

  4. Gorgeous picture:) Not much Kayaking at the beach...unfortunately.
    Made me think of a wonderful kayak trip I had in Nashville years ago!
