You know what the best part of summer is?
The sunshine? Sleeping in? Spending time outdoors? Mosquitos!
Yes, yes, yes and YES!
There is a lot to love about summer, but one of my favorite things about summer is spending time OUTSIDE.
Even better if EATING is involved, RIGHT?
Meat from the grill.
A little wine or a good microbrew.
Lemonade and iced tea...
All on the deck.
Wait. Not THAT deck... THIS deck!
I live near Seattle, so we have approximately 25 days a year to take advantage of decent weather.
We have a nice little spot just outside our kitchen. Most of our 3 acres is unfit for enjoyment - unless you enjoy "natural landscaping" because... did I mention THREE acres?
So having sweet little eating spot is a nice place to land.
A table, some chairs, flowers and/or candles, good friends and a handful of lemons help make a summer brunch, lunch, or dinner feel special.
Even Kevin seems to dig a spruced-up outdoor dining living space!
And sunshine. Be you man, woman, or dog... we Pacific Northwesties are SUCKERS for sunshine.
