Summertime in the northwest has been breathtaking.
Sunshine, dusk not setting until after 9 and the sound of our birds chirping very early…I love the scent of grills going and finding a new joy daily when I visit our produce garden.
Dinner revolves around what we have an abundance of and that is ripe, ready to be picked, pulled or cut.
I love the way nature has such away of being present and an important part of our daily lives.
As are outdoor projects are consuming any spare time we have. I feel it is laying a wonderful beginning for future summers and also welcoming the other seasons throughout the year.
As we build our outdoor living space I dream of being outdoors as much as possible. I find myself loving these moments more & more…
With having seasons in the northwest we are trying to make our space to be weather resistant. We want to be able to sit out, probably with the fire going and take in the beautiful days & evenings throughout the year.
Such a happy artichoke!
Reaching high into the beautiful sky…
Seattle is just as gorgeous in the air…
Clean, green and pure beauty.
With traveling for over 15 years in my career. You come to appreciate it where you live even more. We are surrounded by beauty every moment. We just need to be willing to take it in.
Some highlights of traveling over the last month is I get to see some wonderful friends.
Also yummy eats!
He has been traveling non stop for work. Not home but a few days out of the month. We decided to put a rollaway bed under the stars on the balcony.
Mix up the hotels stays.
Jonesy, is such a great friend. He always makes me laugh until my stomached is aching. We have many memories over the years.
He adores my family. Has bonded with husband. Him and his partner are the ones in magazines for the many, many Christmas trees that start going up in I believe mid September. His partner Ryan had the honor of decorating the White House for the holidays.
They have the same passion for entertaining, events and parties.
I absolutely love creating healthy real food for my family.
The busyness of work, produce garden, summertime commitments, and our outdoor under major construction. I look to the empty canvas (my kitchen) and need to create…
