Fawn love...

I've been eagerly waiting for these summertime days to begin. They are my absolute favorite!

The fawns are here!

At the end of May and early part of June, the hill country whitetail deer begin to have their babies. Precious little fawns with their wobbly legs and little white spots begin showing up in the tall grasses. Twins are commonly seen following behind their momma, cautiously watching as they try to mimic her moves.

This morning I saw two new babies on my drive to work. It knew it would be an awesome day! I had to pull over and text Josh to tell him that the fawn season had started. Whether he was in a meeting or not, I knew he would be dying to know (not really, but he humors me when I get excited like this).

We saw these precious little ones outside of Bandera. They were so sweet and innocent. It was all I could do not to try to go out there and pick one up and love on it.

I know better...and Josh told me 'no'.

This time of year makes me think of God's amazing glory and how He created all of this for our eyes to see.

We just need to make sure that we are taking the time to look.

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

  1. I know, I saw a precious one drinking from his momma the other day on the side of the road. I gasped at the cuteness.
