to me those have always
been the two most beautiful
words in the English language.

Strawberry Lemonade and Lemon Cream Cupcakes~June 2008


Thank you for stopping by for a visit and taking a look at a few of my favorite things about June. I'm looking forward to some time off school, a wedding anniversary and Emily's 10th birthday. What are you looking forward to this month?

I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.

Oh I'm so happy it's just about strawberry picking time here. Your lemonade looks so yummy. I think I'm going to have to make some.

Just looking at these pics have been relaxing! And I love the June quotes. I am going to enjoy each and every minute of this lovely month! Painting and upcycling things for my webstore, working in the garden, and enjoying fresh vegetables.

Kathryn said...

Hi Kelli! Beautiful, beautiful pictures. This month I am looking forward to a two week trip to see my daughters and their families. While I am visiting them I can go to Hobby Lobby. HE! HE! I have told you before how much I love that store.

Also, a fun birthday party is coming up on June 20 for my granddaughter who is turning five. There are many, many reasons to love June, aren't there?

Love, Debbi

I am looking forward to not having to leave the house for school activities.

Lazy summer evenings...embroidering.

Making Iced Tea and Lemonade.

Trying to grow my veggies...and pulling the weeds. (well, pulling weeds isn't fun...but it keeps me in the garden)

I love June because the days are longer. I can work out in my yard until dark. Then we will light the fire pit and sit around that.

I love June too- the beginning of summer. Probably from the good feeling of school being out when I was growing up:)

I enjoyed your pictures- beautiful!

Have a wonderful week, Kelli!

Hi Kelli,

A lovely post, as always. ;) June for me is like another Christmas. Just between my husband and mom and dad, I have one anniversary, two father’s days, and three birthdays to buy for. They are all within a 7-day period. I am thankful for all three lovely people. I just wish that they wouldn’t all have celebrations at the same time! :)

We close on our house June 18th and move!

I remember those lemon cream cupcakes from last year. I tried making them and they came out okay but didn't look as delicious as yours. Happy Birthday Emily.
Have a great June Kelli. Take care.
