What is summer without special treats? The pandemic has put a dampener on many summer staples, but luckily for us, local businesses have found creative (and yummy!) ways to adapt. With the Washington State Fair canceled (which is a longstanding end-of-summer tradition for many), Fisher Fair Scones and Made In Washington present two delicious ways to celebrate.

While we’re very aware there are much more important things going on in our country and world this summer, we are finding small joys wherever we can. We thought we’d share a few of our latest discoveries and tips. (But also, while we’re at it, this is a good time to make sure you’re registered to vote and to buy some stamps from the USPS!)
