Wow, what a blur the past 15 days have been! House guests, back-to-back trips to California and Colorado, music, summer fun, family, friends…I always know that life has been full when I find myself on an unexpected mini-hiatus from posting here. All of a sudden, we’re well into July! I’ve got a lot to share with you, but while I regroup (and nap), take a peek at these snippets of joy from the past two weeks. Happy summer!
Easier said than done, but so worth the effort!
Turn it up- windows down. #iamold
She can’t. Get. Close. Enough.
Palo Alto pizza party with old friends!
John has requested a napping pillow just like sweet Allegra’s.
Peace and love in the Grateful Dead show parking lot.
Two nights dancing with 70,000 other people was intense!
Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile…
Rainbow over the concert!
An all-time summer favorite: Caprese salad.
Sometimes I wake up in the morning to find that John has left me breakfast. Swoon.
You are here.
Panzanella deliciousness, coming your way soon!

One year ago, we went straight from enjoying this Jackson Hole view…
…to soaking in this Bear Valley moonrise.
Two years ago, we hung out at Sundance…
…before heading to Cliff Lake in Montana. That water!
Three years ago, our summer fiesta ended with shotgunning beers…
…and I fell in love with a juicer.
Four years ago, we were laughing in a bike parade, celebrating Sarah and Cordell’s wedding!
We also got wet at the Fourth of July Parade in Silverton.
Five years ago, we rodeo’d with Nancy, Spencer, and Syd in Montana for the Fourth.
And today, steady rain is a welcome change from the mid-summer heat.
You know. Just the usual bliss.
