I love summer! Just the very word gives me warm fuzzies. I love, love, LOVE it! Always have – probably always will.
Last year I didn’t have the greatest summer, for various reasons. I missed out on a lot of things, had a lot of stress to deal with at my job, and just didn’t really enjoy living life very much. (Sad to say) I tried my hardest, and it wasn’t all bad. It just wasn’t super fantastic.
But I have officially decided: This summer is going to be the best YET!! I’m gonna make it my best. 🙂
I’m going to sleep out under the stars on the trampoline… Sit on the front porch and sing oldies with my guitar-pickin’ Dad… Catch fireflies with Isaac… Go on walks more often… Pick daisies… Climb up in the treestand to journal & talk to the Creator… Sit around campfires with friends… Make fresh strawberry pie & fried green tomatoes… Help capture moments of a dear friend’s outdoor wedding… Run outside barefoot… Breathe in the scent of freshly cut grass… Listen to the locusts humming… Watch fireworks and try not to jump too high when they’re loud… Take Ted & Rose to my favorite 50’s ice cream parlor… Pick blueberries… Sing my heart out at VBS and try not to look too ridiculous doing monkey motions... Bike down to the river with my “big little” brother… Pick flowers with my little curly… Help Mom store away food for the winter… Make homemade root beer… Start writing more regularly… Roast marshmallows…Wear flip flops as much as possible… Dance in a field of wildflowers… Fall more and more in love with Jesus… Enjoy each moment… Live life to the fullest of my ability!!
Yay for SUMMER!!
