Summer is in full swing here and, so far, it has been superb.
The days have been hot, the evenings have been warm, especially within the walls of our non-air conditioned home.
Bed time has been pushed way back, making mornings a little hard to wake up for.
Faces are sticky with ice cream and melted s'mores.
Jack's skin constantly smells of sunscreen.
The backyard smells of charcoal mixed with the aroma wafting from a lightly brushed basil plant. And, you will be hard-pressed to find us eating a meal indoors.
I often struggle with life in Seattle. The endless gray and drizzle for much of the year can feel very monotonous.
But in the summer, all of that goes away.
Summer shines in Seattle like nowhere else; there is no place I'd rather be.
We are extending our days with the sun, excited to soak it all up.
Hope you are doing the same.
