For the past 15 years of my life I have lived in states and countries that have less than desirable weather conditions for the majority of the year. Living in Northern Ireland has consumed nearly the last 9 years of pretty shocking weather. A day in Northern Ireland can possess at times snow, hail, rain and crazy winds with the occasional burst of sunshine. Today however, is not one of those days.
Today the sun is shining, vitamin D is lavishly being thrown down to our corner of the world and I am thankful. Every person wears a smile, chats casually about the glorious weather and even seems to walk a little bit lighter. On a day like today I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Instead of complaining about the fact that I am indoors for the third sunny day in a row, I decided that The Press needed to be taken outdoors. We set up two pop-up tables, placed some flowers on them and let others enjoy the pleasure of al fresco dining. I hope to enjoy a coffee out there before the day is over but for now I take delight in seeing our customers soak up the sun for me.
