Hello Friends! His Eye Is On This Sparrow has undergone a summer facelift.
My husband and I went out on a scenic ferry cruise today. We past by very luxurious homes. I could not resist taking this photo and posting it as my summer header image above!

The warm sand and cool lake waters are calling! As you can see, there are plenty of open seats. Hope you can make it!
