Summertime and the Livin’ is Easy


After a long, hard winter…filled multiple below zero days and TONS of snow…spring weather has finally arrived! Even though it’s been raining for the past few days and the sunshine is limited, I couldn’t be happier to know that summer is coming. After perusing Buzzfeed a little & finding a lot of great articles about summer 2014, I stumbled on one that was actually really awesome. It’s titled, The 58 Best Summer Sensations, and here are a few of the examples that they gave.

  • The balmy breeze of a still night
  • The relieving coolness of an air conditioned movie theater on a hot day
  • The feeling of the sun
  • Getting caught in a warm thunderstorm
  • The taste of sweet, ripe fruit
  • Taking off your bathing suit in the evening and seeing the milky lines between your newly darkened skin
  • A sudden, refreshing breeze through an open window
  • The familiar childhood sound of the ice cream truck
  • The race of eating ice cream in a cone before it starts to drip and melt around your fingers
  • Remembering what it’s like to be a kid on summer vacation
  • Feeling healthy and alive after playing a sport outside
  • The total freedom of running barefoot on soft, dewy grass
  • The smell of barbecue glazed meat roasting on an open grill
  • The choral symphony of cicadas at night
  • The fragrant smell of sunscreen
  • The thrill of riding roller coasters
  • The unmistakable smell of freshly cut grass
  • The feelings of warmth that envelopes you as you walk out of a freezing cold building


School has been a MAJOR bummer this semester so needless to say, I cannot waittttt to get these last few weeks of the school year outta the way…and get to beautiful summer!!! I need warm weather, a tan, and lots and lots of free time more than anything else. Well, maybe not more than I need my student loans paid off, but it’s pretty close.

Thanks for reading!
