Summer Memories — HOME TO HELLAS Hop
by Stephanie Beck
My eldest daughter—all of 8 years old—always says ‘we’re making memories’ if someone happens to gripe while we’re stopping a fun activity to take a picture. It cracks me up because she says it so dramatically, but it really is the truth. Summer always goes by too quickly—and now that I have kids, it really flies.
One of the major themes in Home to Hellas is the magic that summer has for Jenn and Dorian. It’s their time to escape the real world and fall into each other in the beautiful Greek sunshine. The chance to build something more permanent finally comes and they realize how much groundwork they’d already done thanks to those summers together.
Our summers are filled with pizza parties with friends, neighbor kids running through the yard, birthday parties, church celebrations and every single excuse to eat, drink and be merry while the Minnesota summer sun is shining. Here is how I documented at least some of my favorite memories.
Just looking at the caps brings back where I got them. ICB for a first birthday party—cowboy themed! Light cider for when the check out fella told me it was gluten free—naturally that made it super healthy. Crispin Cider caps—just two, from bottles tucked in a gift bag on my front step from one of my dearest friends. It just goes on and on!
Looking at this makes me wonder what would be on Jenn and Dorian’s bottle cap picture. It makes me want to go to Greece and get a good look at the bottle caps.

Stephanie Beck is a full time mom, part time writer and ameture speller.
She’s been writing since she was fifteen. Her first novel, “Love on the Mats” was a graphic, heartwarming tale of a wrestler and a cutie coed which was lovingly edited by the c-squad basketball team on the long bus rides throughout the season. They were all sure it would be published and it still has a home in a folder…somewhere.
Stephanie Beck loves romance and all things romantic, heart warming and usually funny, though a more serious piece will find its way in occassionally.
In her spare time she knits and sews, walks the dog, plays with her two wonderful daughters and tries to get her husband to act out the naughty things she researches…oh the sacrifices she makes for her craft.
