What summer means to me.

A Sunday drive into the country.

It has been a hot weekend, so we definitely used the A/C, no driving with the windows open.

We were undecided as to destination or route, so we simply headed northwest.

Walled lake looked beautiful; we looped it prior towards heading further out of town.

It then occurred to me of today’s date. I quickly alerted Mr. Truffle to pull over into the next 7Eleven store. FREE Slurpies!

The rolling hills and winding roads were a pleasure compared to the city driving we normally experience.

We ended our drive with a nice meal out. Our server, Lindsey, was excellent!

Enjoy the pics,


  1. What a nice outing, Shannon! Beautiful breathaking pictures!...Christine

  2. Looks and sounds like a fun day! I love taking off like that with no definite plans, just a day of sight-seeing and stopping whenever you come across something you'd like to see or visit. I love the pic of the sandal in the flowers!

  3. What a lovely day. It's so cool that you had no definate plans and just wandered. I rarely get the chance, but sure love doing it.

    Thanks so much for being a part of Summer Sundays!
