Color Challenge: Summer Blues

Here we are, the beginning of summer and it is truly unlike any summer we’ve experienced before. I am sure you are all feeling it too. Not being able to travel to our cabin is devastating (it is literally 10 minutes from our house, but across the closed border!) On the other hand, the current situation has offered us opportunities to spend time closer to home.

For this month’s Color Challenge, I am going with shades of blue to honor all the fun things we are going to do this summer: lazing in our friend’s turquoise pool, swimming in the deep blue ocean, laying on our backs under the wide open sky, eating endless local blueberries!
