Here in Vancouver, we have had 50 days of rain out of 60 in the past two months, everywhere you go, everyone is talking about it! So I’m wistfully looking outside at my patio and wondering when I’m ever going to get to sit outside for dinner!

    Wow, those two are dreamy. Here in Germany, we have a very pleasant spring with lots of sunshine, a thing rarely seen in the last years. And I've got the busiest time in my life ever, haha. But I'm not complaining, sunshine is nice either way 🙂 I hope it's getting your way sometime soon, too (but I want to keep mine ^^)!

    Hot and humid in PA – but no rain in a few weeks. I didn't think we'd ever see the sun. That second photo of the outdoor space you designed is spectacular! Oh how I'd love to enjoy a cocktail there. Also just signed up for your newsletter.

  • Donna says:

    Hi Maria, Could you PLEASE send me some of that rain?? LoL! My DIL and grandkids just headed back your way. I must say she will be glad to get back to cooler temps. It's been just so hot and dry here in Texas.

    Looking forward to this newsletter. I'm so glad I subscribed a long time ago! I wouldn't want to miss your great posts. :o)
