Summer Lovin’

I’ve written about my love for summer many times, especially my memories of it as a kid. The other day on Facebook, I saw this post and decided to share it. I tagged all the people I still know that grew up on my street with me because it brought back so many memories of being a kid.

I shared it on May 18th. Since then, it’s been”Liked” almost 500 times. I guess that this photo brought back memories for lots and lots of people!

So I thought it would be fun to bring back some of my favorite posts about summer. Here they are, in no particular order.

This one is still one of my all-time favorite blog posts because it takes me right back to childhood: The Scents of Summer

One of my favorite sounds in the world: Waves

A typical summer day when my parents both worked and we ran amuck looked like this: When I Was A Kid…

And of course this one about how summer’s and childhood freedom has changed since we were all kids: Summertime

My sister Angie and I. Who remembers these tiny little pools and the way old school photos turned orange?

I’ve even written fiction about a summer day: The Wall. It’s dark, but then again, all my fiction is dark.

I’ve even shared a few summer cocktail recipes like the PERFECT Summer Cocktail, Peach and Orange Sangria, and One Glass White Sangria. I’ve got another one in the works too, so stay tuned!

What are some of your favorite summertime memories? Whether it’s a scent, sound, taste, or sight, I hope it’s a good memory!
