This year in the Bay Area summer was a brief moment while I had been away traveling.  I love Bay Area summers and wish I hadn't missed it.  The warmth of sun grazing my face while a fresh breeze weaves through my hair.  I look down at my feet and realize I've managed to keep my tan since my summer in Australia in early 2009. Come back to me, dear summer.
