Summertime Favorites!

I think summer is my favorite season. As much as I love Spring and Fall - and y'all know my obsession with snow and winter - there is something magical about summer.

Long days that slide into hot nights. There are afternoons to be spent beside a pool. Boys to be ogled at the beach. There are family reunions and new friendships to be made at camp.

Plus there are sandals. All sorts of sandals. Flip-flops, slides, mules. Stilettos, flats, pumps. And to go with those sandals, really fun toe designs made by people who live to massage your feet. And make them look pretty.

But my favorite part of my favorite season? This week. I love the celebration and the atmosphere that surrounds the 4th of July here in the US. The time spent with family, the time spent with total strangers, and the fireworks. I've been obsessed and awed by fireworks for as long as I can remember. Some call it pyromania. I call it real curiosity about how things work. And how something in a plan black or red wrapper can explode into colorful designs that light up the night sky.

How about you? What is your favorite part of summer?


  1. I like the people-ness of it. Summer's more social, more downright fun. Now, if I could just make it less hot... :-)

  3. Everything!
    Riding, gardening, the mesa! Hot days and long evenings. I just love this season and don't ever want it to end.
    Happy 4th!

  4. I could do without the extreme heat--but I love the scent of honeysuckle, fresh berries from the vine, and night breezes.

  5. Family, seafood and fun! I live summer. Even the hot days.

  6. When I think about summer, I think about the music when I was in my teens and early twenties. Tweeted.
