Summer thrills me.
And even though it technically doesn’t start for another few weeks, we’ve had some perfect summer days mixed in lately with our misty spring ones.
I used to be a fairly “inside” soul – aside from the occasional bike ride as a kid or marathon training run as an adult, I preferred mostly to stick to activities you could do indoors (I was always the bookworm/arts&crafts type). But I pretty much live for the long days & warm weather right now. I guess it helps that Colorado is low on both humidity & mosquitoes.
Summer is eating on the patio, long evening walks, afternoons reading by the pool & escaping to the mountains on the weekends. Summer is smelling like campfire. Or aloe, if you’re anything like me and my pasty Irish ancestry. Summer is farmer’s markets & frozen yogurt. Summer is grilling every night for dinner and mixing up fruity cocktails on a Wednesday, just because. Summer is living adventures & making time for getaways.
Oh, how summer thrills me.
Chime in guys, what’s your favorite thing about summertime?
