What I Love About Summer

I go back & forth about my favorite time of the year. By the time summer gets here I'm so ready for it, but 2 months in I'm longing for fall to make its arrival. Thankfully I still have the "OMG I LOVE SUMMER" mentality going on (I give it until August before I'm whining about how hot it is).

My Favorite Things About Summer:

- The sun is out longer, which gives me time to do outdoor activities after work (see above photo)
- I can live in shorts, sundresses & bikinis 
- My skin tone isn't that of a Cullen, so I don't have to wear anything but eye makeup
- Lots of quality time with family & friends at BBQs
- Jamming out to country music while playing cornhole in the driveway
- Drinking lots of sangria
- Extra leisure time for reading...I just started Gone With the Wind
- Spending lots of time in the water: lakes, oceans, rivers...any & all of it
- Tailgating & country concerts...AND that Luke's new CD is being released 
- It's a valid excuse for excessive sweating...um what? Hey what I can I say...your girl sweats a lot ;)

I'm soaking in every second of free time this summer, because hopefully I'll be going back to school in August...surprise! More on that later...way later.

  6. Unfortunately for me, my skin tone resembles a Cullen. Womp Womp. But I would have to agree with you on everything else! Great list!
