Summer At Last

Friends, it has been a very long winter. Washington state saw record rainfall this season, and you know, we are sorta known for our rain fall, but this winter/spring had me wondering on more than a few days if there was actually blue sky up there anymore. It was grey and damp, and even the life-long PNWers were getting antsy with it all. Then, the clouds parted and the !SUN! The sun came out and all I wanted to do was start rattling off the lyrics to Fresh Prince’s “Summer Time” (I have them pretty well memorized, should you ever want to have a rap off with me…). And if that wasn’t nostalgic enough, I busted out my instax (because what is old is new again, right?) as the kids splashed and played and soaked up all that lovely blue sky and warmth. I love the snapshots I captured of the backyard shenanigans on that first hot weekend in Tacoma, Washington and I sure hope you do too!

Keep Chasing that light, Vanessa


  1. hooray for sun and blue skies! hope you enjoy much more of that this summer!
    …and that last shot…just love it.

    • thanks Michelle! my favorite part of these and using my instax is that they are usually snapshots, I like not fretting over the quality – the moment and energy are what get to shine through and that’s exactly what summer is all about to me!
