Summer Solstice 2014
Our annual Summer Solstice BBQ is one of my most favorite nights of the year.
Every year I think about it a bunch but forget to officially invite anyone until the last minute. We clean house and shop for food at the last minute. I forget to take out my camera for photos until the last minute. But it’s all okay, because summer solstice is nice and the last minute last longer than any other day of the year.
The days might start getting shorter, but they’re only going to get warmer and summery-er (a new word). This annual BBQ reminds us that summer has arrived and gets us back in the groove of lazy meals in our green, leafy backyard. Sharing relaxed evenings in the golden sun with friends is my favorite part of the season. I’m so glad the time has come.

2012 (OMG Grrr’s hair. I forgot he used to look like a little friar.)
