I realize that I am probably an annoying cheerleader for all things Alaska.
I can't help that I love it here.
But please don't think that I'm delusional.
Even I am aware that this hasn't been a sunny, hot summer,
and I wish we'd have a few more days that actually FEEL like summer.
On the other hand, I will refrain from complaining about the lack of heat or the rain we get in light of all the wildfires in Colorado. I guess I'll take the rain and cool over that......but I digress.
Summer exposed its beautiful face last week and we enjoyed afternoons at the park as well as a day at the lake swimming, sunbathing, eating fruit, getting sunburned, and admiring the blue sky and green mountains. It's days like those that remind me why I live here.
And I'm feeling optimistic that we'll have more of those summer days ahead of us.
