01 June 2013

The start to our first summer in the northeast.

It showed up out of nowhere. It was as if no time had passed at all, except that then it was 50, then 70, then 90 degrees outside. In almost (but not quite) Texas fashion, spring in New Jersey came and went in the blink of an eye. We had about 3 weeks of what I think was spring-like weather and now, summer is in full bloom. We're definitely not complaining! Being Texas kids, Luke and I believe that the lemonade is a little sweeter, the corona is a little cooler, and people breath a little easier once summer arrives. I know I live for fewer layers of clothing and longer days once Memorial Day has come and gone. 

We're off to a great start for our first summer in New Jersey. I've been laying out with friends, we're taking the dogs to the park more often, and my coffee comes iced these days. :) We had some family visit last weekend and I'm headed into the city tomorrow to meet up with a college friend that is in town for a girls' weekend. 4th of July plans are already in the works and even sooner than that, Luke and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary.

Summer 2013, you're more than welcome to stick around as long as possible. 


  1. I'm in PA - I am actually sad that spring was here and went. So far its been way too hot and its just the beginning of of June! July is the worst! :)
