summer solstice

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

hello loves!  Did you know today is the first official day of Summer!  The Summer Solstice is tonight, making this day the longest one of the year. {I'm such a little weather nerd...} 

Ironically this first day of summer brought with it the sickening humid & hot weather.   Over the past few weeks the temperatures here in Virginia Beach have been hovering around the mid 70's!  We were letting the cool breezes blow through the windows, while leaving the A/C off, and even the other eveningI sat outside accompanied by Lucy and a few hundred lightning bugs, reading a book, wrapped in a blanket and honestly, it was down right chilly!  But not today. Today is one of those summer days where you step outside and are immediately hit with a blast of hot, humid air that seems to swallow you whole.  When being outside for more than a few minutes, unless directly near a body of water, makes you feel as though you just might melt.  Heck! Lucy won't even go outside for more than a minute, and my girl loves being outside. 

I'm not complaining though, I love summer.  

So heres to:

.....cold drinks topped with lemon & limes....
......grilling anything on our trusty Weber....
.....sunbathing, bikinis, and tan lines....
......shorts, sandals, and sundresses.....
.....walks on the beach......
....catching fire flies & roasting marshmallows....
.....bike rides, ice cream cones, and fireworks....
....days at the beach & nights with friends.....
and so{so} much more....

Hello, Summer!  I missed you.
