Thing I love about summer:

1. Warm cement after the sun has gone down and it's dark outside.

2. Fresh flowers or herbs in a mason jar on the dining room table.

3. Water.....pools, lakes, oceans, rivers, sprinklers, hoses, in a cup, ice.

4. Fresh breaths of morning air, so thick with sweetness and warmth.

5. Everything just feels a little free-er, relaxed schedules, longer days of light, lighter clothes.

6. Farmer's markets!!!!!!!!

7. The best fruits of the year....nectarines, peaches, cherries, strawberries...yum!

8. Bike-riding to get ice cream.

9. Picnics

10. Reading outside with an Arnold Palmer (lemonade & tea)

Yeah, I'm so excited for summer now- wait, it IS summer. I'd better get with it before it's over! I am actually planning on going to the Farmer's Market this Sat. I'm excited... :)

Love the list Michelle. Farmer's markets are one of my favorites too - although this summer I feel kind of silly that the main reason I want to go to the market in Cherry Creek on the weekend is to buy Hawaiian shaved ice. We get fruits and veggies too, but seriously, they are not nearly as fun as a cold syrupy snowcone! Thanks for your comment on my blog - I'm due Sept 10th, but am hoping this baby is two weeks early like Sophie and Thomas:) Hey, when do I make your blog roll huh?:)
