Hello Summer, You're Early

Seattleites know that summer doesn’t really start until July 5th. I’ve watched many a fireworks displays through clouds which are really just fuzzy burst of diluted color. However, this year we have been blessed with a few weeks of pre-summer gloriousness. Being a general fall/winter person, I was determined at the beginning of this summer to improve my summering skills. I think I’ve been doing pretty well so I’ve compiled a list of Top 10 of this pre-summer to date:

Top 10

1. Seaside Oregon Trip o’ Relaxation with overcast skies, s’mores and sundaes (see Steph’s entry)
2. Camping and Biking Deception Pass (decidedly not a “camper” but gorgeous ride with a whale sighting)
3. First Seattle Sounders Game (lots of standing and a tie game…lame)
4. First Thursday Art Gallery Stroll with the Ladies
5. Blast from the Past (Metric) Century Ride in Sedro - Woolly – Best cookies – ever…period.
6. Miss America’s Bachelorette Party – Spa, dinner, drinks, luxury hotel, brunch
7. Melissa Kennedy Becomes Melissa Robinson – Beautiful Party at the Edgewater
7a. Meeting Rosie Thomas who told me she wants to be my friend.
8. One day Road trip to see Brandi Carlile in Portland Oregon
9. Back Road Riding through rural Woodinville – Snohomish – Arlington
10. Zoo Tunes – Emmy Lou Harris, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Buddy Miller

And, ps. I’m tanner than I’ve been in years thanks to lots of time on the bike, lots of roof top lunches and sunny skies.

I was laying out at Zoo Tunes with friends thinking about how whenever I pray I always pray that I will have the eyes to see, ears to hear and heart to respond to all the beauty in the world (or something along those lines). Living in seattle, while at an outdoor concert with friends, I heard, saw and felt what beauty could look like.

Now, I’m off to enjoy another fabulous weekend in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
