Despite the fact that my skin tone doesn’t agree with pastels or that my hair doesn’t do too great with humidity or that my cheeks get pink when I walk out to get the mail or that I can’t find a deodorant strong enough, I think that summer is simply wonderful. WONDERFUL.
Here are a few of my favorite things about summer :
-sleeping with the windows open—overhead fan on high
-freshly-cut watermelon slices, with a squeeze of lime, chopped up cilantro and crumbled feta.Don’t knock it ‘till you try it, people!
-shaven legs on clean, cool sheets
-running a 5k on a Friday night, with free wine tastings to boot!
- sweet tea from a mason jar—crushed ice, please
-nighttime walks to the Downtown Mallwith my man, then picking up a little Sweet Frog for the walk home, of course!
-skirts, shorts, dresses (read: free leggies!)
-being tan….sort of. OK, fine. Being freckled.
-beach hair, hat hair, headbands and natural highlights
-driving with the country music blaring—foot out the window (if N’s driving)
-long weekends at the Outer Banks, NC—making sure we stop at Grandy's for a free sample of fresh peaches on the way. YUM.
-iced coffees in perspiring, plastic Starbucks cups
