Hello, friends. I'm back from a lovely and restful vacation. We spent a couple of…
Let’s not talk about how I should have written this post for Monday. Instead, let’s welcome July and declare it right on time.
There’s no denying that it’s full-on-summer now and it’s my favorite. To me, July is all about long days, sultry nights, and morning dew. It’s about thunderstorms and rainbows that follow, special treats like ice cream and toasted marshmallows, juicy summer fruit, buttery corn on the cob and roadside flower stands. Relaxed schedules, fewer meetings, and time outside instead of inside. It may be hot and humid, yet I still prefer t-shirts and flip flops over heavy coats and boots. Backyard swimming pools and sweaty glasses of ice water are much more enjoyable than snow and ice and hot cocoa.
I do my best to find something to love about every season . . . and fully admit that it’s just easier for me during the summer than any other time of year. I intend to soak up every bit of it.
