Awesome Things About Summer

  1. Sleeping with the windows open. Especially when you get a cool breeze on a hot night.
  2. Ice cream sundaes for dinner.
  3. It is easy to get dressed in the more than underwear, a t-shirt and shorts. Some days it is even easier: bathing suit.
  4. Watermelon. And raspberries. And blueberries. And corn on the cob.
  5. Getting up really early......summer mornings are spectacularly beautiful and precious, and it's SO much easier to get up in the summer.
  6. Watching a sunset.
  7. Not knowing what day it is when you are on holidays.
  8. Summer matter how old you are or what the time of year, there are certain songs that remind you of hot, sticky summer nights when all you had to do was have fun.
  9. BBQs.
  10. Diving into a pool on a hot day.
  11. The feeling of things being less serious than other times of the year. I don't care how long you've been out of school, you feel like you can take it a bit easier in July and August.
  12. A cold beer outside on a patio after work.
  13. Napping in a hammock.
  14. No socks.
  15. The smell of bed sheets dried out on the line.
  16. The feeling of adventure and excitement when setting off on a road trip.
  17. The shower you take after a day at the beach. You will never feel cleaner.
