Feelin' in a great mood today, it's the first day of Summer, and there is magic in the air.
I think I've decided that Summer is the season of all seasons...
and while I live in California where it seems to be the land of the endless Summer, there is still something extra special about this time of year...
I love how the my bedroom fills up with light early in the morning, and doesn't fade till after nine pm.
I live for these long days... as long as the sun is shining I feel like I can conquer the world!
I can't get enough of seedless watermelon with a little sprinkle of salt.
I love Sunday drives down the PCH to the beach after church.
I get a rush rolling down the 101 with the windows down while blasting Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys and amber by 311, or anything from Pete Yorn's music for the morning after with the warm wind blowing my hair into a big gnarly knot.
I feel free with no coats and liberated in a dab of lip-gloss and no make-up.
I look forward to quick trips to the carwash, my favorite place to sit out in the sunshine and eat a strawberry shortcake ice cream bar while oldies blare over the intercom, songs like smokie's tears of a clown
I long for the smell of sun screen and Banana Boat suntan oil.
I love evening bike rides through the hood, seeing kids playing outside and people walking their dogs
I'm talkin' Flip flops, family vacations to San Diego, saturday home improvement projects, fireworks and the Fourth of July!
And this year, a lot of time spent with our Londy Loo, watching her grow, taking her on early morning walks, pushing her on the swings and watching her chunky roley poley legs walkin' and waddlin' in a soggy diaper and swim suit of red white and blue with her sweet little belly hanging out... splishin' and a'splashin at the Splash Pad amongst happy kids.
Life is good in the Summer time.
