Simple Summer Favorites

I do so love the different seasons. Really. Every time we go into a new season, I think of all the reasons why that one is my favorite. Then, just when I get tired of it, it's time for another one. Well, it's really, really hot right now where I live, but I'm still loving summer. I decided to make a list of ten of my favorite things about it:

1. popsicles
2. the farmer's market and fruit stands
3. our family garden and fresh veggies
4. my sister's pool
5. watching my husband swim in my sister's pool- he's like a fish.
6. green lawns
7. the smell of freshly-mowed green lawns
8. bar-b-ques
9. my little boy wearing only shorts and his tan tummy
10. my big girls and their tan shoulders, looking like I used to

(Ok, so number 10 is a little bittersweet. Give them a few years and a couple pregnancies and then they'll be envious of their own daughters).

But how about you? Do you like summer? What are some of your favorite things?

I like that list. And why is it we can't keep that youthful body to keep up with our kids? after everything bearing children takes can't we at least have slender hips back?

But oh how I miss my garden veggies. Namely tomatoes. So eat a lot of fresh ones topped with fresh basil and mozzerela, olive oil and salt, zapped in the microwave for 30 seconds for me!

What a great list. I need to stop and enjoy summer rather than always complain about how hot it is.

My mouth is watering, Nicole. Will do! Our tomatoes are finally starting to turn red! Yay.

Courtney- it's so blazing hot! Makes me so glad for air conditioning. I complain my fair share, too.

I love the SUN! We don't see much around here except for in the summer. Fruit is also one of my favorites; I probably have eaten enough this summer to equal my body weight (which is a lot considering I am pregnant).
