C'mon Summer!

It's so close you can almost taste it! I don't know where you live, but around here, we get four full seasons. Winter is only fun when we get a snowstorm - which doesn't happen very often. Fall and Spring have some great parts about them, but they tend to always feel too short.

But summer. Ahhh - it stretches out ahead of us like a beach blanket.

So because it's Friday, and summer is coming - a "favorites" list. Join in by posting your favorites in the comments. I'll even draw one name to win one of our adorable Good Life ladybug bags:-)

Favorite Taste of Summer: Watermelon

Nothing says summer like a big juicy watermelon. We've been through two whole ones just this week!

Favorite Smell of Summer: The Ocean. 

I've always LOVED the water and fortunately, I've never lived too far away from it. Somehow - we always manage to hit the beach every summer because there is nothing else like it. Where else can you sit in a  chair and get as distracted by watching the ocean as you can in a good book. There is nothing like the smell of the ocean.

Favorite Touch of summer: Flip-flops.

Ah - toe freedom! I love being able to slip on my flip-flops and just go. And because they're cheap, I never feel bad about having multiple pairs that are just plain fun.

Favorite Sound of Summer: A Lifeguard whistle.

Because, that would mean we're at the pool. We belong to a community pool where my three kids swim on a  swim team. So we spend a lot of time there in the summer. And even if it's pushing 100 degrees, it never feels as hot when we're sitting by the pool.

Favorite Sight of Summer: The Last Day

Yep - that last day of school when my kids come home with their biggest smiles, their backpacks stuffed to the gills with everything they accumulated at school all year, and the whole summer stretching before them. Nothing like seeing your kid's "set free" to just have fun.
