Top 10 reasons why I love summer:
1.) My week with the boys! I am so blessed to be an aunt!
2.) Photography – I get to devote way more time to this precious passion!
3.) Fresh produce – I have spent the summer trying to find ways to make our menu full of health vegetables. I feel like I have been somewhat successful. It gives me great pride to hear Jason tell me how much he loves what I have made and how much better he feels when I cook something good for us!
4.) THE POOL! I have pool time just about every day from 10 to 12. I love it! I usually tread water and swim laps for an hour and then layout for the last hour. I can’t tell you what a blessing it is to me to get this time during the summer!
5.) Family Time – I usually see my family way more in the summer time. I adore hanging out with my brother and sister. They delight my soul!
6.) Tan Skin…I know, I know, I know…but I LOVE to be tan! I feel prettier and feel like I am working on myself when my skin is several shades darker!
7.) Smell of Suntan lotion – speaking of tanning, I love the coconut smell of lotions and oils. We even have a Sentsy smell that is called beach for the summer time.
8.) Friends – I get to hang out with people that I never get to see during the school year. I have been blessed with an amazing collection of friends. They are so creative and fun…I love getting to plan, hang out, swim, laugh, eat lunches and/or dinner, and enjoy them during the summer.
9.) Spending Time in My house – I know this sounds weird, but I love the way the light changes throughout the day. I love hanging out watching movies and catching up on my dvr. I just love being in my house while it is quiet and still. So refreshing!
10.) Freedom from an absolute schedule – I have put myself on some cleaning, working out, and playing schedules this summer, but for the most part, it has been a time of freedom from set rules. I have gotten a chance to rejuvenate and get ready for a great school year!
