I love summer. 

Yes, even when it's traumatically hot and unbearably humid.

I love the long days, the heat of the sun on my skin, the sounds of the cicadas in the trees.

Life in the summer feels relaxed. It's still broad daylight when I arrive home on weeknights.

I can go sit in my backyard with a cool drink, even if I get chased inside by mosquitoes before I can finish it. 

Kayaking and taking photos
Summer is for kayaking, biking, camping, having drinks on patios, observing creatures in and plants in the garden, spending more of life outdoors. 

I'm taking it all in, enjoying every aspect. It's what will get me through the cold, dark winter months that will be here before I know it. 

Happy Summer!

  1. I'm with you! I would take 105 degree heat over winter any day. Which is why I'm sad it is August 1st because that means it is coming to an end.

  2. Totally agree! I wish summer could slow down just a bit. I'm not ready for it to end.

  3. Hahaha. I would probably take winter over summer. But you have a point about the cicadas. I do love that sound.

  4. I know you live way out there - is the kayaking IN your backyard? That would be cool!

  5. Kate - it's less than a mile away ... great for a quick kayak outing when you don't have the patience to drive far ... Come down sometime and join us!

  6. Mmmm ... all of that sounds delicious, and makes me want summer to last forever! Thanks for a reminder of some of my favorite things! Also: Nice butternut squash!
