NW, Meet Sun

Finally the sun has begun to shine here in the Pacific Northwest.  For those of you not familiar with our climate, the forecast for 9 months out of the year is 40 degrees and overcast/cloudy.  The reason why people actually tough-out the consistent gloominess is because the summertime is so magnificent:  80 degrees, sunny, and almost no humidity.  As a native East Coaster, this is a big change from a summertime low of 90 with 100% humidity!

The pictures below reflect the chilly weather we experienced last week.  Can you believe I had to wear tights in May?!?!  (Please ignore my hot-mess hair.)
