It's finally here! It's finally here! It has been so long since these pale bones have seen the sun. I'm so excited and I just can't hide it. Summertime is on its way and we will be spending this s'more eating, sandal-weather wearin' summer in...Lake Tahoe!
My on-and-off relationship with Lake Tahoe started almost four years ago when we came for a friends wedding in the middle of gorgeous July. We then spent a few days relaxing in Wine Country, a night exploring in Sausalito, and dined with a few friends in San Francisco, we were in love. Two years later, we made the bold move to leave the Big Apple for the West Coast. We never looked back.
After two years in the city of San Francisco, we bought a house in our favorite little getaway spot, Lake Tahoe. From barbqued chicken to s'mores on the grill, I'm looking forward to a summer with my favorite warm-weather pastimes. This weekend we were up at the house getting some yard work done and thought we'd test out the new grill. Enjoy a quick preview of what's yet to come.
