I know a lot of people in the Pacific Northwest LOVE winter and snow and all that, but I'm not really one of them. A few days of snow back at home visiting my family is ok, but really I long for the warm days of late spring, summer, and early fall. In the winter I am more like a bear; I like to be cozy and hibernate.
Luckily I have tons of photos to always go through and remind me of the warm summer, like these ones from a trip to our cabin in Sechelt, British Columbia with friends for the 4th of July weekend. Friend trips are pretty incredible - especially when 2 of those friends love cooking and prepare gourmet meals for everyone :)
