What I Love About Summertime.
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.
+ 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.
