    Summer is Back!

    The recent drizzle made it hard not to feel like we were being robbed a week of precious summer. After all, there are only so many sunny days that inspire you to jump into the creek each year (!!) and to lose five in the middle of July – unheard of!!! Nevertheless, it looks lik...
