I hate to go all Weather Channel Watcher on innocent people, but despite the light box and the vitamin D supplements and the dutiful exercise, I’ve never adjusted to the Pacific Northwest’s moist grey winters. [I will coat myself in moss and start talking to ferns before I live in super-snowy climes, however.]

As the past several days have seen blue blue skies shining on our beloved greenery I NEED to know: with July 4th nearly here, is warm weather ready to stay?

…to invoke summer—and offset my recent deluge of text—I’ve dug up photos that celebrate my favorite color pairing…

  1. Ooooooh, pretty! I have a thing for ginkgo, so I love your bedding. As always, I envy your backsplash. So fish-scaley and iridescent!
