I wasn’t made for summertime and sunshine. I was made for crisp autumn air and thickly piled blankets and steamy mugs of cocoa. But I think this summer will be different, one to remember instead of being so grateful that it’s over.

This summer I’ll spend with my sister (and new baby!) who’s moving so close after being away for so long. This summer I’ll take afternoon naps and acquire dozens of little scratches from my family’s tiny new kitty (with beautiful eyes the color of that No. 6 elegant sofa). This summer we have lots of exciting new client projects that have been in the works for months. This summer Jeff’s leg will be healed enough to go on mountain trails and motorcycle rides. It’s shaping up to be a pretty great summer.

This pale mint and desert sand colors reminds me of summer haze and the Aegean Sea on cloudy days. When the heat gets too intense, these soft colors help me remember how long I’ve waited for this summer to come.

“The beauty of that June day was almost staggering. After the wet spring, everything that could turn green had outdone itself in greenness and everything that could even dream of blooming or blossoming was in bloom and blossom. The sunlight was a benediction. The breezes were so caressingly soft and intimate on the skin as to be embarrassing.”
Dan Simmons, Drood
