And so the mother and the father left their youngest daughter on the other side of the world and flew off to the far north, to tend to their garden and tell the story of summer in Seattle to each and everyone who crossed their path. After sunshine for days on end, the sky grew darker as they packed their bags. And the moment they took off, the rain returned.
Left behind was a heart within a tree, a turquoise lake among green mountains, and memories of endlessly winding roads going nowhere and everywhere at the same time.
As one story ends, another begins. The rain nurtures all that grow and adventures are everywhere. Let's go out and find some!
Summer is far from over.
