Happy First Day of Summer

Happy First Day of Summer!

Here’s to:

Popsicles – the kind with two sticks, preferably in rootbeer or banana flavor

Sunshine  – bright, robust and beautiful

Blue Skies – so vibrantly blue you can’t help but smile to look up into the azure depths

Roses – because their fragrant scents were made to fill the air of a summer night

Sprinklers – that are meant to be run through as much as water lawns

Sparklers – because no matter how old you are, you should play with them at least once a summer

Ice Cream – because it’s ice cream and one of the wonderful confections ever created

Dreams – that seem more alive and vivid during the summer

Picnics – whether it is a full-fledged affair or a thrown together basket of bread and cheese, sit on the grass, lounge beneath a tree, absorb the essence of summer

Fresh Air – filled with the sweet taste of summer and meant to be inhaled deeply, slowly, intently

County Fairs – for the calorie-laden food we all look forward to tasting once a year, the greeting of old friends, the silly rides, the obnoxious smells, the complete summer-ness of it all

Backyard barbecues – because that which is cooked on a grill outside during the summer tastes better than anything else you can think of at that moment

Porch swings – patios, hammocks and any other outdoor furniture that allow you to slow down, sit back and soak in summer

Summer gatherings with friends – because they are informal and fun. Here’s a download of party ideas.

If you have ideas to add to the list, please post in the comments section!
