The summer night is like a perfection of thought.

~ Wallace Stevens

After off and on rain all last week, it was nice to have a sunny weekend!
we enjoyed our first campfire on the patio…a longtime tradition here
a summer night favorite, complete with toasted marshmallows, (which of course led to s’mores)
a bottle of wine
and the peace and quiet of our own little backyard retreat!
