Flashback: Mid-August on a carefree afternoon in Seattle. (Photos taken in my parent’s lovely backyard.) The temperature oustide was in the high-70s with sunshine and a light breeze.
Current day: Mid-October on a dreary afternoon in New York. The temperature outside is in the low 40s with rain and wind.
I was out in this rainy weather all morning and was finally able to come home this afternoon, take a hot shower, and make a fresh cup of coffee. I put on my comfy clothes, which at the moment, consists of a white furry hooded zip-up vest, a deep purple jersey dress-turned-nightgown, and bunny slippers. I must be channeling Jessica here! Anyway, as I got up to change my music selection from Frank Sinatra to Michael Buble, I pulled up my blinds for a moment and stared out at the rain coming down. I immediately thought back to my lovely summer at home in Seattle, and that’s when I remembered these photos. I had been holding on to them for a moment just like this. A moment where you need to be reminded that sun does exist, what it’s like to be dry when walking outside, and what it’s like to go barefoot in your backyard. These photos make me so happy, so I hope by sharing them with you, that the lighthearted energy behind each photograph shines through, and that the sun peeking through the back garden gate might add a little extra cheer to your day. xoxo
