A Few Favorites

A bright blue linen dress from a thrift store and a new striped Echo scarf, just a few things I've been enjoying now that summer has begun. The list below has also given extra sunshine to my days:

- This Ice Cream Book
- Coldplay's new single
- Whole Living Magazine
- Local beer with frozen peas as impromptu ice cubes. (The beer was warm and I wouldn't have any of that! The peas were great to nibble in between sips.)
- This Book
- Finding Nelly Furtado in the deep grooves of my iTunes library
- Finding a compact version of the Fannie Farmer Cookbook for $7

It Should Be

Today felt like June should. Warm air, flip flops, fresh fruit, sun dress, wine, nap under a tree. The air smelled of smiles, if you can imagine it.

It didn't come easy. Unimpressed with Seattle's June weekend clouds, we packed a lunch and headed east to the heart of Washington's wine country- Yakima. An icy bottle of Pinot Gris welcomed us, along with soft grass, and a shade-offering tree.

I got to spend time with this guy, my best friend and husband come September. No amount of sun dresses or fresh fruit can top spending time with him. He's my personal encyclopedia, is quick to vacuum, appreciates good tea, and makes me feel very pretty. Just how it should be.
