Sunday Sweets: Makin' The Best Of This Summer Heat

Ahhhh, summer. You know, there's something about July here in Florida that makes you want to go outside, take a deep breath... and stab the sun right in the face.

D'awwww. I love how friendly the sun looks here - not at all like the eye-searing, makeup melting jerk we know he is in real life.

Now let's throw in a pretty flamingo for good measure:

Swooning! This almost makes me forgive the flamingo that tried to eat my face in the Bahamas.


Now back to cute fruit:

Everything's cuter with Kawaii faces on it. FACT.


And finally, a watercolor wonder that's truly... [sunglasses]... ONE IN A MELON:
