A Picture Perfect Summer

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Summer is my favorite season. I bitch and moan along with everyone else about how hot it gets, but secretly I love it! I prefer stripping down to tank tops and cutoff shorts to cool down over layering sweaters underneath jackets to stay warm. You can never really get warm in winter. Fall colors are too drab and April showers bring Spring allergies. Give me summer all year round!

A perfect summer consists of these five things...

  1. a trip to a sandy beach with water so blue that you wonder where the sky ends and the ocean begins

  2. an old-fashioned backyard BBQ with "all the fixings" and by that I mean homemade potato salad and iced tea
  3. watching fireworks on the 4th of July while sitting on a blanket with your arms wrapped around the person you love the most

  4. vanilla ice cream in a cone piled so high that you can't lick it fast enough and don't care that it drips down your arm

  5. watching three movies at the cinema on one Saturday because there is nothing but reruns on television

Me too...I LOVE summer! And it's not complete unless I get to a beach somewhere (not so easy...the nearest water is 4 hours away).

You're so right. I need to stop bitching and moaning about summer and get myself an ice cream cone! YUM!
