I love summer. About as much as popcorn and popcorn is my all time favorite thing in the world-well except for my family and well, they’re not things so yes popcorn is my all time favorite thing. Summer is right up there. From the moment summer really lands through every single day it is here I’m giddy. You’d think I’d have learned by now that summer really does happen every year. No matter how much snow the winter brings or how much rain crashes down in the spring. Summer will come, it always does.
Unfortunately it always leaves too and often too soon for my liking. It’s not that I don’t love fall, I adore fall! If only summer came after fall I’d be thrilled! So what’s a girl to do when she knows summer is coming to a close again? Enjoy every last moment, stay up as late as she can until her eyelids give out. Embrace every green leaf before it’s golden future takes hold. Have an end of summer party. Any kind of party. Anything to celebrate the gift of summer.
This was a great summer, weather wise. Each spring we sit in wonder of what we can expect. Not that it didn’t rain. Of course it did and on the one day we had a big picnic here. In fact if you want rain you can ask me to plan an outdoor affair and you can almost guarantee rain. Thankfully I like tents and little kids love to play in the rain. So a few downpours won’t dampen any party. As I say prepare for the worst and hope for the best!
So with less than a month till summer says it’s goodbye I will hold every minute of her until she walks away into fall. I will make sure to stop each day and thank her for bringing me such joy. And I will remember all the many wonderful parts of this gorgeous time of year.
Just a few highlights of what summer brought this year.
