Welcome the soft warm arms of Summer
Today is the first day of Summer here in the Pacific NW...and well, it is feeling more like it than the past few cold and wet weeks. The sun is out and my thoughts start drifting to thoughts of summer picnics, bbqs out on the lawn, late warm evenings on the front porch watching the light slowly fade, hearing Hazel's shrieks of joy as she plays in the sprinkler....
It's so easy to get caught up in the grind of our frenetic day-to-day lives. We all have so much to do, and never enough time to do it. My goal for this summer is to take some time and relax a bit more. Breathe in the heavenly warm scent of ripening peaches, enjoy the tart-sweet punch of homemade lemonade, and actually take the time to lay down on the lawn and read a book.
Ah, summer. May we all take a moment to enjoy you a little bit this season!
