For me, summertime means mornings that are not dictated by alarm clocks, but instead by the sounds birds chirping, sprinklers turning on, and lawn mowers humming. Hot afternoons with far less hectic schedules are an invitation to lounge in the backyard under the shade of trees reading a book. Evenings give way to cooler air, dinner on the grill, sipping a favorite cocktail, the glow of lanterns and fireflies and perhaps a visit with friends or neighbors.
And, then the best time of all....summer vacation! The beach is my absolute favorite destination. The sound of waves crashing, the smell of salty sea air, sand between my toes and a breeze coming off the ocean is all that I ever need to truly relax!
Hello Summer...I've missed you!!!
