First Weekend of Summer



Summer weekends are about spending time outside, near a pool, just enjoying the beautiful weather and surroundings.

Friday started with a glass of wine, from the Sauvignon Blanc we purchased at a wine tasting. The perfect summertime wine - crisp, light and fruity. We enjoyed the evening at our friend's backyard pool, with good conversation that lasted into the candlelit night.

Saturday evening we attended two outdoor parties. First, a graduation open house in my neighborhood. We walked down the street to a lovely party under a tent, catching up with neighbors and were delighted to hear the news of a recent engagement.

Later, we took a quick car ride to my sister's mexican fiesta themed party at her lovely, picket fence, enclosed pool. We ate delicious fajitas and I enjoyed a refreshing cocktail that fit the party theme - a grapefruit, tangerine margarita. Very fun and different.

Our first weekend of summer was the perfect beginning to many opportunities to sit outside, relax and enjoy the beautiful weather with both friends and family. We will take advantage of every nice evening and every chance to enjoy outdoor entertaining.

Happy Monday!

  12. Sounds like the perfect way to start of the season. We had a busy weekend too - a large birthday party for my mother's 80th, then family visiting from the east coast. But it was hot, almost too hot. And that's the one thign I don't like about summer.

  13. Looks like a perfect summer day! It's been raining here in Seattle.. :( Hopefully we will enjoy some sunshine later this week. Your pool looks so inviting! We had a pool when we lived in southern CA. Folks here in the PNW don't bother. They head to a local tennis/swim club and the pools are usually indoors. I miss the outside pool time!

    Enjoy your week!
