I haven’t been exploring much this week, so unfortunately I do not have a new place to write about. Instead, I thought I’d share some of the little things that are making me happy this summer. We’ve had fantastically hot, sunny days here the last two weeks and I’m grateful for it (I can say that only because the A/C is on at home and at work!)
