A Pitcher Full of Lemonade?

OOps! Nope! That's not lemonade, just a candle. But what could make a lazy summer day more special than fried chicken, yummy food, and a candle burning?
Well, yesterday was a fun summer day. After church yesterday morning we had a mid-summer youth event at our home. It was a blast to have our house bursting at the seams with the energy of about 60 fun friends, teenagers and some adults. The fried chicken in the photo above wasn't from yesterday, but Becky sure served "up" some awesome hamburgers and hot dogs!

At one point a thunderstorm clapped and boomed its way over us, and pelted just enough rain to make the grass slick and sticky. Next time we're all hanging out, drop by, I believe love and fun makes a house grow. There is always room for one more! We found out when we all went inside for the thunderstorm!

Have a fun day!
Love, Rachel

It's just like you to put a candle in a glass pitcher. Never would have thought of it but I love the look :-) I'm just waiting for your ideas to be published somewhere soon.

I love your life philosophy. I wish I could practice the same philosophy. Unfortunately, nobody else in my household feels the same way. I agree with you, the more the merrier.
