What I Love About Summertime. - A Tiny Traveler

What I Love About Summertime.

11:14 AM

Every year I debate whether I enjoy Summer or Autumn more. Each year, Autumn wins. Today I was thinking about all the wonderful things that are coming my way in the fall: crisp weather, warm sweaters, our wedding, a new home, nights on the porch under an afghan sipping hot tea, the morning chill as I pour a cup of coffee. Oh yes, I do love Autumn!

But what about Summer? Each year as it approaches, I think about the big, warm, beautiful sun. I think about swimming + trips to the seaside. I think about sleeping in late on the weekends and having no school work to worry about. I think about my birthday.


Summer has always held a special spot in my heart because it is full of possibility. It is filled with freedoms and opportunities that Winter and Spring do not necessarily carry. Autumn is fantastic, but today I wanted to pause for a moment and think about all the things I love about Summer. I'd love to hear some of your favorite things in the comments below!



My Favorites:
+ Reading on the front porch, enjoying the sunshine and birds singing.
+ Sipping iced tea or lemonade as I read.
+ Going to the beach with friends and family for the weekend.
+ Laying in the sun with nothing to do.
+ Staying up late and sleeping in.
+ Iced coffee!
+ Sweet slices of watermelon.
+ Going on road trips, and driving with the windows down.
+ Meeting new people and exploring new places.
+ Going swimming in lakes, rivers, pools, and oceans. (I love the water!)
+ Melty ice cream in a waffle cone.
+ Laying in a hammock and watching the trees dance overhead.


What are some of your favorites? What have you been up to this summer?
