Summertime Pleasures

What are you doing this summer to slow down the pace?

Are you enjoying outdoor gatherings, fellowship with friends, and summertime pleasures?

The very season that beckons us to slow down and take time out for relaxation, sunny weather activities and a slower pace, just seems to still go faster than I would prefer, how about you?

My summer hardly has to be planned, as the activities come my way without much effort. My kids keep me busy and before I know it the summer will have slipped away.

What can I do to slow down the pace?

Take time to smell the roses... (literally)

Read a really good book...

Take time for friends and family with outdoor eating and activites...

Play with my kids...

Enjoy this moment which will quickly change...

Before we know it the leaves will be turning golden shades and we will be celebrating our fall season. Take some time to slow down the pace and enjoy every moment you can...

New Painting Projects With Dutch Boy

I was just contacted by Dutch Boy paints offering me 4 gallons of complimentary paint in exchange for a review of their product. They just sent me a beautiful fan deck to choose my new colors. I can't wait! Check out their website here.

I am looking forward to trying this brand of paint and now I need to decide what new project to tackle. I will probably paint my 16 year old son's room and then from there I am not sure.

For all you DIYers out there. Dutch Boy has another site called Restore My Decor, where you can submit pictures of rooms you need help with. You can even enter a chance to win a room makeover!

Have you ever used Dutch Boy paint? I would love to hear your feedback on this brand of paint. Be sure to stay tuned for my painting results. I'll let you know how it turns out.
