Beautiful summer colors!

Hi, and welcome to the weekend, friend. 🙂

One thing I’ve been loving lately about summer are the colors! I feel like everything around me has a dreamy vintage color palette. Case in point — yesterday, El Hub was working from home, so our little fam-bam went out to my favorite bakery for lunch. We sat outside right next to this beautiful bunch of flowers. Hmm, now that I think about it, they might be shrubs, but I don’t know. Anywho, the mix of green and yellow and orange against the blue sky and the beige umbrellas made my heart sing.

For some reason the flowers remind me of the clothing designer Ulla Johnson, who I read about recently in “Vogue.” She makes luxury clothes in beautiful prints and soft feminine silhouettes. If I never had to worry about spilling food on my shirt, I’d be wearing her stuff 24/7!

Speaking of food, I made this corn and bacon pasta the other day, and it so easy and delicious and very summery.

Corn, bacon and parmesan pasta

If you’re not into bacon, I think you could easily turn it into a vegetarian dish by skipping it and substituting it with cherry tomatoes. Or, just use your fave bacon meat substitute. It was easy and fast, and if you pair it with a summer fruit for dessert, you’ve got a delicious meal in no time.

With Rainier cherries for dessert!

I’m off to drink another cup of coffee and then I’m going for a walk! I’ve been on a walking kick lately, and for the last week, I’ve hit 10,000 (or more) steps every single day! I gotta say, I’m really proud of myself for keeping it up. 🙂

What are you up to today? Are you spending any time outside?

Whatever you’re doing, I hope you get some time to yourself.
