Ordinary moments can be so relaxing.
Leftover pasta and stuff all in a yummy salad
Lemonade iced tea and a movie
I love the 4th of July! Edmonds parade, BBQ, and this year we went to the fireworks too.
Much fewer rogue neighbors lighting off things than our old house. That helps the dogs tremendously. And it’s really dry here (drought and wildfires) so the police and government pleaded with people not to light off their own. Thank goodness.
It was nice for Stephen to be off an extra day and we even took the time to explore a state park we haven’t been to before. We found a downhill hike to Lake Washington and then the dogs could cool off before our trip back up the hill. It’s been record-breaking hot for a month and we could feel it!
Looking forward to a break in the heat wave finally this weekend.

Dinner with a friend I haven’t seen literally in 20 years! She teaches in Korea and was visiting the area. We had dinner one night and then drinks the next night before Stephen and I headed to a concert.
Rob Thomas concert with friends (and a new dress).
Wow. Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage legal on all 50 states. Marriage is marriage. Love is love.
(Me: watching tv…tears of joy!)
As the Seattle mayor said “welcome to the other side of the rainbow” :)
I’m amazed. Astounded. And so happy for so many people- those who want to marry, their children, kids waiting to be adopted but couldn’t be because their waiting parents weren’t considered married in their state, couples who have been together forever, those who want to live and die together. In love.
