Summertime

Its here.

My favorite time of year.

Summer.

I don't mind the heat. I don't mind the humidity (although it's murder on the hair.)

I love flip-flops and Popsicles. Watermelon, swimming pools, trips to the beach.

Fireflies, eating outside, staying up late.

Hanging out with friends, reading good books, enjoying the moment (as it will pass all too quick...)

I love it all...

I received an email last week entitled "100 Things To Do This Summer", but I dumped it in the trash bin.

Today begins the official day of summer here at the La Vida house and I plan to do three things this summer: spend (quantity) time with my friends and family, sew and craft until my hearts content, and remember my love for being in the kitchen.

I don't need 100 thing to do, I do them all year, but those three things listed above...well, I've missed those the most.

This morning I am raising my coffee mug in a toast:

To summer!

Great list of three. I hope you get your hearts fill of friends, crafting, and the kitchen.

I'm with you, Sistah! The shorter the list, the better :) I want to sit down with a hank of yarn and crochet, make a pitcher of lemonade, read a book...

Lindsay said...

yay for summer!! What have you been crafting lately?

Gretchen said...

Cheers, m'lurve! I have to get Soe in to the doc for a tune up b/c her tension is giving me tension, if you know what i mean. But after that, we'll be the bicoastal wonder crafting platernal twins. I tend to use too many commas, so in the previous sentence, I left them out. B/c that's how I roll in the summertime.

I admire ladies like you who love summer so dearly. I love everything about it except the heat, but the heat is a big hate of mine! My three things are different (I don't craft or love to cook), but here's to friends and family!

So glad to kick off summer with you today. It was a gloriously relaxing time.

I'm with you on summer! I love it & it seems to go by so quickly. But I'm sure going to enjoy it while it's here!

I have a few things I'd like to do this summer too ~ but mainly enjoying the time with the kids! :)

Happy Summer!

I love it too. Except when we're moving. Which we are.

Raising my mug to you *clink* -- enjoy, my friend!

I'm jealous of those trips to the beach. Movingrightalongthough...

I hope you'll post some pictures of the fruits of your crafting.

*clink* I love summer! Isn't there something so strange about having a to do list for the summer? That's not how I define it!
