This season I am loving the one-piece suit as you might have seen from this post a few weeks ago. I love everything about this look from the bright colors to the classic touches, making the outfit an A+ for beach or pool attire.
When I was in Jr. High, I started playing golf. I joined my grade school's golf team as the only girl and had quite a challenge that fall learning how to swing a club while dealing with the jokes and nasty comments from the boys on the team. Nevertheless, I kept up the sport and continued to play the next year...and throughout high school. I was never the best golfer, but I loved playing the game. Even when I didn't make the team my senior year of high school, my golf clubs remained in the garage, bulldog head cover over my driver waiting for my next time on the tee-box.
Throughout the years, my favorite golfing partner has been my Grandpa. He is the only person in my family who plays the game and we have tried to consistently play throughout the summers. He helped me love the sport; to truly ENJOY it. Instead of battling for pars, we play for "even 5s", we cheer over putts that finally sink (no matter how many tries), and always enjoy an after game handshake and pink lemonade.
We play early in the mornings, watching the sun rise and trying to beat the heat in the hot and humid summer days. When we take family vacations up to Michigan, we always spend a couple of days on the golf course seeing views of Lake Charlevoix on the tee box; how many sports can create a setting so picturesque?
Golf will always be an important to me because of the relationship I formed with my Grandpa throughout the years and the adversary that I overcame during the beginning part of my journey with the sport.
I never realized how much character I gained from the game both on and off the course.
I will forever hold dear the greatest game ever played.
You might have seen my feature on lemonade as a perfect summer refreshment, a couple weeks ago. I am back for another ideal summer drink, this time the Arnold Palmer. Named after the golf legend, a delicious combination of lemonade and ice tea quenches anyone's taste buds and thirst during the hot afternoons.
A switch to the recipe is an Amy Palmer which mixes PINK lemonade with iced tea. A little feminine touch to your refreshment!
For a cocktail worthy drink...add a splash of vodka.
The theme for this week's Friday's Fancies is Color Block and I am eager to share my outfit with you today. I found this beautiful Tibi dress that I would love to have in my closet, aren't the bright colors perfect for summer?? I provided several shoe options. The sandals on the left are flats, your classic T-strap and then a pair of Jack Rogers. The sandals on the right have a bit of a wedge; whatever your preference, there should be an option!
I own no right to these pictures. These are a sampling of the vast collection of photos that I have saved from years of searching for inspiration throughout the blogosphere and cyber world. I would be more than happy to provide you with a direct link to a particular photo upon request. Just send me an email (email@example.com) and I will help you with official citations. Thank you!!
