6.15.21 Hello Bella

Sometimes I think about what Summer would say to me if she were the friend I imagine her to be.

“Where have you been?” she asks. “And why haven’t you made time for the best parts of yourself? I miss you.”

To which I answer …

“I miss me too.”

It seems that our summer-selves are just a bit more magical because summer is the season where our childhood hearts remain effervescent with joyous potential.

(Excerpt from Bella Grace issue 28)

I have to say that I am just completely charmed with the Summer Issue of Bella Grace. Writing “A Summer State of Mind,” allowed me to dwell in my favorite season of the year. And “52 Things I Could Do,” was pure fun from start to finish … dreaming of all the possibilities I’d treat myself to if time were not such a villain!

As if that weren’t dreamy enough, I am also the host of Bella Grace’s Blog Grace Notes … dipping my toes further into the beauty that is summer with, “Summer Lights: 35 Joys That Light Us From the Inside.”

Please take time to say, “Hello Bella,” with me and let me know which piece spoke to your inner summer-self! Hearing from you all is forever and always my favorite part!

Sparkles and sun kisses,

  1. When I read “A Summer State of Mind” I was instantly transported back to my memories of summer rain, childhood treasures (which I still have), the water of lakes and the ocean, summer sunsets, summer adventures, golden friendships, and my favorite flower (lilacs). What a joyful experience to fill my mind and heart with the luscious images of the beauty of summer. Thank you so much Elle for this time travel in my mind. It is such a delight to visit these experiences and feel like I am there again. I have this article saved with a marker so that I can revisit it any time that I want to.


  2. I found your blog! I can already tell that reading your entries will be like taking a long drink of delicious words and experiences. It was so lovely to meet you in person. Happy, glorious summer!
