Summer Favorites

I love summer! I have lots of fond memories of summertime growing up. My very favorite part of summer was always my birthday, granted... but I have lots of other favorites too! Dont you just love the things that remind you of a time or place? I sure do! Here are a few of mine!

* The smell of fresh cut grass
* The sound of the bell from the ice cream man (even though he is a bit creepy)
* Watermelons
* Lightning Bugs (as we refer to them in the south)
* Thunderstorms
* Family Vacation
* The lake
* Fourth of July
* The Farmers Market
* Live music on a restaurant patio
* Lemonade
* Kids playing in the sprinklers... better yet SLIP N SLIDES!
* Baseball games
* Sea, Sand, and Shells
* Flip flops
* Lazy days at the pool (back before my big girl days of working full time)
* Though I LOATHED it at the time, summer cheerleading camp brings back great memories
* Crickets Chirping
* Sun Hats
* and of course my birthday!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Yay! What a fabulous list!
    I hope to experience some of them when I move to the south also! :)
    Great list...:)

  2. Ugh, it is so hard to read that list and remain in my windowless office! I want to be outside smelling grass and eating watermelon! :)

  3. oh i love summer :-)

    if you think our ice cream man is creepy, you should see the one downtown! :-)

  4. I love the list and it just reminds me too of how much i love the summer just minus the Alabama HEAT!!!

  5. you need to make a summer hate list and put mosquitos at the top of the list! My legs are covered with bites!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments!
