Happy July 4th: Back To Blogging On Monday

Wishing my dear American family and friends a wonderful July 4th.  I hold dear so many happy family memories of picnics, barbeques, and fireworks, joining in with the celebrations on the Central Coast of California.

I never expected to be away from blogging for so long.  Happy to report that I will resume posting on Monday with updates, news and looking forward to visiting you, dear fellow bloggers.   Thank you so much for keeping the Summerhouse ticking over in the meantime, you guys put a skip to my step and a smile in my heart.

Happy weekend to you all and see you on Monday!

Love Sherri x

    I’ve been on Hiatus too Sherri since leaving for Scandinavia nearly a month ago, but like you I am ready to jump in again. Thanks for the holiday greetings. Felt a spark of fond recognition when I saw Morro Rock. The Central Coast of California holds dear and long memories for me. Looking forward to seeing your thoughts again from over the pond!

      Hi Jeanne! How lovely to hear from you, I hope you had a wonderful time in Scandinavia, a place I long to visit. We are totally obessed with Scandiavian dramas here 😉 And what a wonderful coincidence about Morro Bay! Who knows, maybe we crossed there paths there once upon a time ago and never knew it. We lived on the Central Coast for 17years, in Los Osos and then Paso Robles. My eldest son attended Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. So many happy memories 🙂

Had a lovely weekend thanks, hope you did too. Will be checking out your Cornwall pics very shortly…meanwhile, come on over, I’ve got the Pimms jug chilling and the fresh mint at the ready 😉 PS Love the Martini glasses 😎
