The winters up here are long and dreary- full of white, dingy browns and grey. It can be beautiful in its own way, but it’s so dull to look at day in and day out.
Spring was also a little slow to start up here- full of rain, cold weather and grey skies. Then- BAM- summer hit last week and suddenly its all sunshine and warm temps!
There is so much I love about summer- the BBQs, the corn on the cob & the watermelon, the late nights on the deck watching the sun go down and the last minute ice cream runs. But my most favorite thing is the return of color!
The blues of the pool and the sky. The green grass. The pink and purple sunsets. The hot, yellow sunshine. The orange umbrella. The kiddos tan skin (despite, yes, twice daily application of sunscreen) and the emergence of their blond hair. I love it all and I’m so glad to have color back in my life again!
