I love all the seasons for different reasons. Summer is a great season….even if it is blazing hot outside.
Flip flops and tee shirts. Shorts and tank tops. Wearing sunglasses. Getting a tan. The smell of suntan lotion. Running through yard sprinklers or spending a day at the lake. Maybe the ocean. Sand and salt on your skin. Outdoor picnics, grilling burgers and hot dogs. The taste of sweet corn with butter dripping off of it, a nice cold iced tea. Staying up late. Sitting out on the deck to watch fire flies as they light up the darkness. Watching fireworks as they explode in the night. Feeling pride to be a citizen of the good ol’ U.S.A. Swinging on the porch swing. Listening to the crickets chirp.
The days are longer….the sun sets later. Everything is more relaxed. That’s what I like about summer.
