The Start of Summer

2014 July 6


Summer is in full swing here and so far, it has been pretty glorious.

The days have been hot, the evenings have been warm.

Bed times have been pushed back (sometimes to their limit), mornings have been lazy.

There are sticky ice cream-covered faces and sand in our sheets.

The smell of BBQ and the sweetness of cherries.

Warm skin and sun-kissed hair.

Friends from near and far, all coming together to enjoy a piece of our sweet little beach life.

I often struggle with life in Southern California. It can feel very monotonous to have the same sunny, 73 degree days year-round. I miss the seasons and the foliage and snow falling.

But in the summer, all of that goes away.

It captures the essence of the season like nowhere else.

And we are excited to soak it all up.

Hope you are doing the same.
