Dreaming of Summer

Even though there's a foot of snow just outside my door, the only thing that's been on my mind lately is summer. Those easy, long stretched-out days of endless sunshine. The whirring of lawn sprinklers, the smell of fresh-cut grass and steaks sizzling on the grill. Fireflies, warm starry nights, and sweet, sticky watermelon... I crave it, taste it, and desperately want summer to begin.

The change of seasons has always inspired me. In fact, I'm in the middle of writing all about enjoying our home, and our lives, as the snow starts to melt and buds begin to blossom. Summer Home will be the first in a series of season-inspired musings on ways to enjoy living well all year long. So as I put pen to paper and try to finish my latest project, this week’s posts will not be filled with words, but with beautiful images instead.
