Cheers to Cherries

If the hot weather, or the kids being home from school, has not convinced you that it is Summer, the grocery store also says that it is Summer and has the cherries to prove it.

I love the deep reds and the shiny skin that throws happy twinkles of light everywhere. It’s no surprise that someone came up with the saying that, “Life is a bowl of cherries”! And, yes, there will be pits, but the taste of cherries is worth it.

I think that stopping along Summer’s path to paint the cherries was worth it, too. It gave me a chance to showcase my rose-colored wineglass, full of lively little cherries!

A toast to Summer and all the adventures we can pack into it!
