i. heart. summer.

 summer is probably my favorite thing ever.  i get excited just thinking about it.  i'm still so bummed that this summer came so late.  we've only been swimming a handful of times & it's already july!  i wish summer could last longer.  this is precisely why i need to move to arizona. i want to be warm/hot at least 8 months out of the year.  and to me anything less than 60 degrees is just plain cold.  i have a lot more energy during the summer & all i want is to be outside.  and our summers are a lot of fun.  we are constantly going. and going.  we do something fun every. single. day.  to me summer includes so many things that i love.  and i want to enjoy my summers to the fullest!

my favorite things about summer...

...days at the beach hair is so blonde & my skin is so tan
...picnics rides
...fresh fruit/fruit stands/farmer's markets
...sandals windows & fresh air all day
...anything & everything involving water
...long hours of daylight
...laying out games
...evening walks
...4th of july
....wearing minimal makeup (or none at all) & letting my hair go naturally curly
...playing in the sprinklers cream & popsicles
...just hanging out in the backyard
...fruit pies & cobblers
...driving with the windows down (& the radio up, of course)
....the streets/parks in our neighborhood packed with kids
... the off season
