10 Things I Love About Summer

Today is the first day of summer, hooray! There is a heatwave spreading across the US, with temps here in New York City set to hit a record breaking 97 by Thursday – ouch! We’re staying in, and staying cool except for a few places we have to go.

I love summer, and here are a few of the reasons why

  • The abundance of fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries
  • Waking up to the sound of birds and blue skies
  • Eating ice cream
  • Turning my face to the sun and feeling the warmth
  • Sitting in the grass at the park
  • Running through sprinklers
  • Taking it easy, slowing down and taking in my surroundings
  • Shedding the layers of clothes in favor of strappy tops, skirts, dresses and sandals
  • Buskers and drumming circles everywhere
  • Food trucks!

I really love these tips from Gothamist about Heatwave Do’s and Don’ts check them out for ideas for keeping cool over the next few days.

    Those photos are absolutely precious! Their laughs are contagious. I already feel myself smiling. I absolutely LOVE summer as well! There will definitely be a lot of outside time this year as we enjoy our new patio.
