My son pointed out today that summer is half over. Not possible! But I looked at the calendar, and he's right. Even though fall is my favorite season, I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer yet. Here's why:
--Our annual beach vacation to the Oregon coast. It's coming soon and I cannot wait. Lazy days, nothing to do but nap and read, and yummy food.
--Sandals. Next to fall boots, I love summer sandals. There's nothing more comfy than a perfect pair of flip flops on a warm day. Haute Look has some really cute ones on sale right now.
--Salads. I wrote last week about how much we're enjoying salad night at my house, especially with all the fresh fruits and veggies available right now. Andrea at Living On Cloud Nine shared a recipe for Strawberry Spinach Salad on her blog this week, and I can't wait to try it.
--Warm, sunny weather. There are two months during the year in which I am not cold. July and August. Thank God for July and August.
--The smell of suntan lotion. It brings back so many great memories and makes me happy. A few years ago I discovered Beach Body Lotion by Bobbi Brown, and it's my go to summer scent. It's light and fresh and smells just like a day at the beach.
