Travel theme: Bright

I think after all the spookiness and Sandy-ness of last week, we can all use a little levity and brightness! So it’s definitely fitting that it’s this week’s theme from Where’s my backpack, and I had a lot of fun looking for some suitable pictures!

When I think of bright things, I automatically think of summertime. Summertime to me means long days of sunshine, fruit gorgeously colorful and ripe for the picking, family and friend get-togethers and of course Fourth of July fireworks! Now that it’s getting cooler in CNY (it snowed yesterday, gulp!) I really enjoyed looking through my summer pictures and selecting the best and the brightest.

luscious red strawberries, freshly picked! they were so juicy and sweet.. of course we had to sample our share before we picked them too 😉

walking along skaneateles lake, the sun shining through the trees caught my eye. what a gorgeous summer day!

summer tomatoes bursting with color and flavor at the farmer’s market!

fireworks for July 4th at a local park!

brightly colored bibimbap – i love this dish!

another fireworks pic, this time over at Niagara Falls. What a great night to people watch and enjoy the mist =D

colorful Adirondack chairs and a cloudy blue sky in Clayton, NY. Taken during our trip to the Thousand Islands, a great area!

nothing i love more than a beautiful flower. nature is really the best artist!

…hot summer…

Omo. I’m actually glad that I’m working this weekend. At least there’s free AC in the pharmacy! And seriously… I thought we were up central new york to avoid this crazy kind of heat! Well… must wait it out.

Thought this seemed fitting. More f(x)! Not my favorite but it is definitely a HOT HOT SUMMER.

f(x) – Hot Summer

Honestly I think the song is kinda silly when I read the lyrics. What the heck does it mean about the foreigners and wearing long black outfits?!
