If these images don't capture Summer in its most purest form, then I don't know what else does. The truth is, when I think of Summer, I evoke my own childhood memories and experiences and they almost always include playing outside until late, beach trips, rolling in the grass, eating fun chilled treats, and just frolicking around. Even now that I live in cold weather for more than four months out of the year, I look forward to Summer like a child. The beach, the sun and the hot days of Summer are and always will be lodged deeply inside me. This Sunday we head to the airport for our long anticipated vacation. It's Florida and the D.R. for one whole month. I hope you have exciting plans, and I can't wait to hear about them. I will be blogging and checking you out from my Summer outposts, and will keep you updated with pictures and other silly things. I'm trying to have a childlike perspective and see Summer as the ultimate holiday. If you can't really be silly during Summer, then when can you? As always here are a few links to brighten your weekend. See you Monday!
