Flip flops flapping and painted toenails
The aroma of suntan lotion
Fresh berries with sugar and cream
Picnics and Cookouts
Kiddie pools, lakes, and ponds
Cherry stains on shirts.
Dirt under fingernails
Multiple skinned knees and elbows.
An endless supply of laundry...
This is the mental list I made today, as I was reveling in the delight of my squealing children playing around the rhythmic sound of the sprinkler.
I found myself trying to capture this moment in time as my toes were tickled by the cool blades of grass beneath me.
I took a deep breath and was drinking in the warm sun of summer.
Summer is a season for less is more. Less stress and schedule and more time to play and rest. Take some time out to enjoy the uniqueness of this season and all it has to offer.
What are your favorite things about summer?
