I find that this time of year is always full of surprises! Whether it be flash floods, new opportunities, or even summertime sales on the most random things you can think of, there's always something new to appreciate. For me, the biggest surprise of the summer has to be right at my own house. The baby birds that live above my doorstep decided to show themselves this past week! We have four of them this year, our biggest number yet! They look a little dopey right now, but they'll be full grown and flying off to make a nest of their own in no time!

What are some of your favorite surprises this time of year?
