Early Summer Images

It seems like we’ve been everywhere this season, and Summer has only just begun. From Washington, we drove through the beautiful Oregon on our way to my home state of California.  The drive was insanely scenic and of course any trip where we get some face time with San Francisco is a success. Visiting family was icing on the cake.

For a short time being, things have settled down around here. I’ve been cooking up a storm and taking photos of mundane things around the house.

We’ve also been getting outdoors (in town) whenever possible. We recently crushed our previous long distance records. We ran 10 miles on Tuesday, a surprise to us both. I attribute that success to cross-training with the ‘Insanity’ videos. They’re exactly as they’re titled: insane.

Now we’re working on getting both of our bikes into commission. I’m fortunate to have a husband who is super handy with road bikes.

And of course the dogs are always in our shadows, shedding on everything.

Things are pretty lax this minute, but tomorrow one of my best friends comes to visit. We’re going to be bouncing around Washington; touring Seattle, Snoqualmie Falls and Bellingham this weekend. After she departs, Jay arrives and we get to check out more local haunts. It’s going to be a busy summer!

And just so you’re in the know, I’m collaborating a giveaway with one of my favorite bloggers. More to come on that in my next post. If you have time, check out my blogroll and see if you can find the creator of my favorite Hand Crafted Pretty Little Lovelies!

    Ah, lovely.

    I see another Peugeot! Love mine.

    1. I love my Peugeot! It’s the only bike I’ve ever toured on, although it’s been a coon’s age since I’ve been on a long-distance ride. Hopefully that’s subject to change.

    I love that first picture. I have a thing for fog.

  3. i love your new blog layout!!

    1. Thanks, Brooke! I’m really excited about it too 🙂

  4. I’ll be up in Bham too. It’s home for me! If you need any recommendations let me know!

    1. We’ll be out whale watching. Any recommendations for a late lunch restaurant near the water that’s easy on the pocketbook?

      1. Jalapeños is fun and has a great happy hour that starts pretty early. They have a patio that looks out over the water. Everything else on the water is a little more pricey.

        1. We will definitely have to check that place out! We’ll be up in Bellingham tomorrow, bright and early. Can’t wait!

    I love Bellingham! My parent lived there when they were first married, while my dad was playing football at Western Washington University. They use to take us back to visit their first house, and walk around the campus. Beautiful!

  6. i’m jealous of the peugeot bike, for some reason i always see them and like them!
