Summer's Here!

I was supposed to post on the solstice (Tues) but I was out enjoying the longest day of the year! Oops.

To make up for that, I'll share the Top 3 things I love about this summer season...

 I love writing outside on my stoop. Yesterday, as I participated in Stephanie Kuehnert's awesome 90-minute writing challenge, I got to watch families walking to the park and I saw six cute dogs. That does not happen in my living room, where I write in winter.

 Iced coffee. (Have I mentioned this one before?) I drink it all year, but in the summertime, no one looks at me like I'm crazy when I order it.

 Dresses! No restrictive tights, no bulky jackets necessary. Just flowy, comfy, pretty dresses (or rompers) for every day of the week. Now that I'm pregnant, I have to choose more carefully -- "dress" can quickly become "tent." It's still fun though!

So what are your top summer loves?

Watermelon, dresses (like you), flip-flops, and taking the boat out on the lake

I love fall a lot, but summer when it is not too hot is amazing for all the reasons you listed (though I go for iced tea over iced coffee) and I need more sundresses, was just thinking that yesterday! I also love love love farmer's markets and working in my garden those are two of my favorite summer things.

PS. Glad you are digging the 90 min challege!
