Summer Is Here!

This past week has been beautiful here, and Nora and I have been enjoying some sunshine and cloud-gazing. 

Inspired by a drink I had in Pittsburgh, I made a strawberry mint Italian soda of sorts. I pureed about a 1/4 cup strawberries and poured them into a glass of iced seltzer water, then added a tablespoon of honey and a mint sprig. It was the perfect refreshing summer drink. :)
I also discovered that we have red currants in our yard. They're not quite ripe yet, but I ate a few, and they're delicious. I'm hoping to make some scones with them when they're ready. 
I joined Instagram this week, too, so these are the first photos I took with the app - Nora sleeping soundly, and a thunderstorm from our front window.
