Perhaps I'm just a season-lover. It's the constant changing, the flow of life and how maybe you can't control what happens in those seasons, but you can always count on the fact that they will come. You are promised the change no matter what.
I'm the kind of person who could literally sit in the sunshine for an entire day. Reading a book, dipping my toes in the water, listening to music - country would be my choice. Mostly because country music and summer simply go together. You can't have one without the other. And if I could find my way to the beach every weekend, I would go. It seems only natural to dwell by water during summertime - even if it's only my blow-up mini pool.
Is this not THE color of summer? Vibrant aqua. It makes me happy just to look at it.
And if aqua is the official color of summer, then the official meal should be burgers with corn on the cob and fresh watermelon. Which was how we ushered in the summer solstice last night. Perfection.
And it absolutely must be topped off with s'mores. I mean, it's only fair to summer. Let's do this right.
Another summer of my life is officially here and this one has been celebrated and ushered in. And though in my neck of the woods it tends to stick around for much longer than it's supposed to, I plan on many more afternoons of sunshine and swimming, many more evenings of burgers, s'mores and late sunsets.
Another hopeful season full of life cherished, enjoyed and lived.
