summer at its best

July 30, 2013 |  Category:   life nyc








The light is already shifting, can you tell? Sundown is creeping earlier, but it wasn’t something I noticed until today. This is the midway point during summer when time seems to accelerate. August is always a blur of a month for us as we try to wrap things up in preparation for our trip. When we get back in early September, we’ll have just a few days to adjust before school starts, and so it always seems like every summer outing, every trip to the beach, the pool, or outdoor performance from this point on will be our last.


We’re having some really spectacular weather lately. The kind of weather that makes you want to stay out long after the sun goes down, that makes sleeping at night with the windows wide open cool enough to pull blankets around you. The kind of weather that reminds you why you liked summer in the first place and makes you wish it would take its time even though it leads into your favorite season (Fall)…

      anything outside as it is the best month of weather usually! We just like to explore a neighborhood at a time, visit parks, etc. I’ve written a lot about our Seattle trips over the years. You can see them under the category “travel”. Hope that helps.
