Happy June to you!

It doesn’t quite feel like the beginning of summer in Portland – I’m still wearing a sweatshirt and the rain still hasn’t let up, but it’s still June so let’s celebrate summer and maybe the weather will get the idea. Traveling this summer?  Need some notecards to mail to friends or family to tell them of your adventures?  Notecard giveaway!  Leave a comment on this post having something to do with summer – what you do every summer that you love, if you are doing something special this year, or just some words that describe summer for you.  I’ll pick a winner at random next Wednesday morning, June 9th,  from those who left a comment.

For me, it’s heading out to Sauvie Island farms and going berry picking – it is so beautiful and we leave with bellies and arms full of berries.  I love heading home and cleaning, freezing and making all sorts of yummy things to share.   This year will be especially fun with Adelaide – I’m picturing a very messy and happy toddler.
