It’s raining in the Ozarks today. Feels like spring, which I guess for the next 20 or so days, it still is. I’m usually not a fan of summer. I hate being hot. I hate being sticky (and it’s always sticky in the Ozarks). And like most women, I’m thrilled with body in a bathing suit.
But I’m trying to turn over a new leaf this summer, and I’m embracing the warmth. Here are the top ten things I love about summer:
- Homemade ice cream
- Independence Day
- My birthday (August 20)
- Flip flops
- Tank tops
- Driving around town with my windows down and radio up
- How green the grass is right after it rains
- (Slightly) slower days at work
- Sonic slushes
- The smell of freshly-laid asphalt
OK, back to you. What do you love about summer?
