Last week we couldn’t help but dream up a backyard BBQ hours before it took place while my best friend and I sat outside on a patio in the warm summer-like heat. We went straight to the market from lunch to pick up ingredients for skewers, corn on the cob, a light salad, and an (on-the-whim) cake! Because, why the hell not. It was the perfect day for spending as much time outside as possible, and taking advantage of a clean house, fresh cut blooms, and BBQ deliciousness.
There’s nothing quite like these first few days of a season shift – changes that bring newness to our everyday lives; recipes, playlists, mindsets, activities – all change perpetually with the weather, and summer by far is the grandest adventure. Being outside on a warm balmy evening is a peak for me, always. We spent the evening listening to the new Lumineers album playing in the background, sipping rosé, and catching up over grilled goodies.
I also was able to snap these images with my new camera which was beyond a treat. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
