Summer

I love summer. I love everything about it. The beautiful, warm weather, the sunshine, the carefree attitudes, picnics, no school, camp and so much more. I even like rainy days during the summer (especially when accompanied by a thunderstorm). I have tried to tell myself that I need to like snow, because of its beauty, and while I will agree that it is pleasing to the eye, there's just something about summer that I love.

Camp has always been the highlight of my year, ever since I went for the first time when I was about 11. The summers I've been able to work outside, I've loved it and realized again that the Pacific Northwest has the most beautiful summers in the world.

I love evening picnics by the beach, walks on summer days, flip-flops (oh wait, I wear those all the time), fresh fruit, fireworks on the 4th of July.

As someone a winter birthday, I desperately want to get married in the summer. I figure since I couldn't have outdoor birthday parties growing up (lest I freeze my guests), the least I can do is chose to have my wedding during the summer.

Even though today is only the first day of March, I'm already excited for summer. This one will be a bit unique as I don't have school lurking ahead of me next fall; instead, my life is one big question mark. That's okay, though, because wherever I am, I'll make the most of my summer, and the time that follows.
