Relaxing Summer Nights

This summer has been flying by…August starts and it is as if we find ourselves scrambling to savor the last of the sunshine, long hours of daylight, sand in our toes, and beach days. I can say with confidence that we’ve been enjoying it as much as we can given our crazy schedules…Dusty with school and rotations, me with work and volunteering, Rowan with his ever growing personality and his need for exploration and adventure. On quiet evenings when Rowan has gone to bed, Dusty and I steal to our outside patio and enjoy a Moscow mule or some much-needed and well-deserved ice cream. We kick up our feet, let the dogs jump up on our laps…and watch the sun melt over the tree tops. We talk about life, Rowan, Rowan some more, the future, our week, our dreams, and the things that are troubling us. Quiet evenings with one another are our favorite moments. They don’t happen nearly as often as we’d like…but when they do, we both feel refreshed in our relationship. Sometimes the busyness of life can get away with us and when it does, we sometime put our relationship on the back burner – something we’ve learned and have had to become very aware of. Relaxing summer nights are a great pastime that I hope we can continue for many many more years to come.

Dusty and I have a sweet tooth…actually, to be honest…I have a sweet, salty, and savory tooth (just give me all the food). Dusty on the other hand is a straight up sweet tooth. So when we sit down for ice cream every once in a while…we hate to indulge toooooo much. Enter Halo Top Creamery. Healthy ice cream….that actually tastes like ice cream.
