on this special day, when the sun shines longest and summer reaches it's height, here comes a summer inspired blogpost! i have to admit, summer is not my favorite season - there i'm at one with that farmer we met on a trip to Ireland some years ago, who said (with that lovely Irish accent which makes my heart ache everytime i hear it!) everything above 25 °C is simply too hot... but one thing i love about summer is the long evenings, when a little mountain breeze starts to blow, and it's cooling down - perfect to gather for an outdoor picnic.
last saturday, david and i transferred our traditional thursday evening tête-à-tête (which we neglected, lately, being busy raising two sweet little happy kids - hence the saturday evening...) outdoors. we went to the Suld Valley, located near the place we live. and found a perfect spot beneath the creek, surrounded just by mountains and trees, and some grazing cows and goats. it was such a simple way to spend an evening together, so lovely and inspiring.
