I'm not much of a summer girl anymore. I much prefer Spring with it's mild temperatures and ever abundant blooms. While so much of the U.S. has experienced a longer than usual cold winter, we Southern Californian's have had just the opposite conditions with warmer than normal days, already hitting the triple digits a few times. To be honest, the thought of what summer will bring is a bit discouraging at this point. (Can it really get much hotter than it already is?)
Like it or not summer is just around the corner so I thought I would take the optimistic approach to the changing season and make a list of all the things I look forward to the most as the days grow longer.
1. Barbeques and casual dinners.
2. Sunflowers and daisies in abundance.
3. Lazy mornings and less structured days.
4. Ice cream cones
5. The smell of sunscreen.
6. Trips to the beach.
7. Summer vegetables.
8. Watermelons and peaches.
10. Movies in the park.
11. More daylight hours.
12. Back to school supplies on sale.
13. So You Think You Can Dance returns.
14. Flip flops and sandals.
15.Trips to the garden center.
Okay, now it's your turn to add to the list. I know I forgot something...
What would make your favorite things about summer list?
