"The Score, Love All . . . "

Bradley Cooper, Movie Star

This is just a simple celebration of a few days of bright sunshine after what seemed like weeks of dreary, rainy weather.  Windows at the house are wide open - letting some much needed fresh into the house.

And it's got me thinking about the outdoors . . . 

Maybe even some outdoor sports . . . .

There's just something perfect about the feel of slightly sun-burned legs on wicker chairs . . .

I always end up writing to our own weather patterns here in dreadfully unique San Francisco - sorry for the overtly bright, cheery images when y'all are still struggling with snow!
