Can you feel it? Summer is coming. While I look forward to Fall as soon as it ends, there are some things I enjoy about summer. Slowly, slowly, the school buses stop running. The sky lights up earlier and wake us with bird songs. The A/C hums on those heavy, sticky Indiana afternoons. Desserts piled high with berries and whipped cream. A cold glass of peach tea and something grilled for dinner. Lingering on the patio in the dusky evening light to listen to crickets and watch fireflies. Counting down the days to our cabin vacation.
This year, since our living room is done, we can finally host lots of cookouts and game nights with plenty of space for plenty of people! Also, I’m looking forward to tending my garden and hopefully reaping some fresh produce. Yes, this long weekend is a welcoming of summer and I’m ready for it.
Have a great long weekend!
