Hello Summer!

Summer offically starts now, since Son is out of school, the sun is shining, the roses are blooming, and, oh, etc!
What do I love about summer?
  • swimming outdoors
  • Farmer's market
  • Camping
  • Drinking coffee while camping
  • Smell of campfire
  • Warm sleeping bags
  • When someone else gets up and makes the coffee
  • Hiking
  • Trail running
  • Lakes at the end of hikes
  • Any food consumed at the end of a hike
  • Chilled wine
  • Our anniversary
  • Sedona 
  • Island Park
  • Idaho
  • Salad
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Homemade salsa
  • Market dinners
  • tomatoes & basil
  • BLTs
  • Cucumber salad
  • Pimms
  • Any kind of drink in the backyard
  • Iced tea
  • Red Butte Garden concerts
  • Sitting on a blanket in the grass 
  • cool mornings
  • cool evenings
  • evening walks with the family
  • casual bike rides around the hood (especially when they end with gelato)
  • music
  • the pool
  • Son reading in his bed
  • lazy days
Okay, maybe that's enough for now. What did I forget?

If there was not one other thing that occurred in your summer except for these things, it would be perfect. I will add that I especially love both summer mornings and summer evenings.

Sedona not Flag. Harumph! But overall, this list feels like summer. Evening walks. What perfect phrasing. Simple and delicious. I keep missing the Farmer's Market though for early-morning hikes. Perhaps when I'm there, I can market with the farmers. I can't wait to see you.

Yes, Flagstaff! How could I forget? We must go have those hamburgers...yum. And hiking. Can't wait! Also: friends in SLC.
