A Guide to Some Simple Summer Pleasures
Summer's different this year. It seems a bit hotter, more stifling. Typically, around this time, we're on our way to Europe for a shopping trip with a side of adventure.
But here in California, the watermelon is still sweet, our back yards have never looked so pretty, and a quick road trip feels like a huge adventure. Feast your eyes (and minds) on some small lovely things that have kept us inspired these first few weeks of summer.
When it's sweltering hot outside, a grapefruit salad can be just the perfect, simple, hydrating meal. Or sometimes (like tonight) I just cut a baby watermelon in half and eat it with a spoon right out of the rind.
Now is a good time to change from winter flannels, or spring jerseys to crisp white summer bedding. Give our Washed Linen Bedding a look. It looks and feels so nice and inviting. And for an extra nice night's sleep, try Yoga Nidra, a sleep meditation. It's divine.
