I love summer.  Many people in Texas hate it here during the summer because it gets so hot.  While the hot gets uncomfortable sometimes I like being cold even less than being too hot. Just north of Dallas is the farthest north I’ve ever lived in my life. I am very warm blooded!  June has rolled around after winter trying to get in a couple late season cool spells.  Weather has warmed and there’s a comforting rhythm going on about my home.  I’m working and relaxing and enjoying lots of sunshine. I thought I’s share a few of my favorite things to do during the summer.  Wear flip flops. This is a high ranking item. Flips flops go with anything and everything. You can wear them to the store and to church. They get put on for dinner out and errands.  I own about 20 pair! No two are alike either. I have favorites, they have bling on them and some I work in the yard in…basic and plain.  I have  mostly flat ones but do own at least one pair that have about a 2″ sole.  My favorites are from a company called Yellow Box.  They make my feet and toes happy.  I like flip flops so much I made a very bright flip flop wreath to hang on my door.  It makes me happy every time I drive up my driveway.

I like summer flowers.  All colors and shades. I love the pinks and purples, the yellows and blues.  The remind me of a box of crayons they have such a range of colors.

I like sitting on my front porch with something cool to drink and talking to the neighbors (before the mosquitoes come to annoy me.)  I have learned to tolerate Texas mosquitoes because they’re not near as ferocious as the ones I grew up with in Louisiana. I spend most of the good weather in my backyard though.  I can sit at the table and “work” or read a book on my magic porch swing.  I don’t do that very often because the swing makes me fall asleep! I can grill outside or jump in the pool.  I can have friends over to laugh and chat and enjoy our time together. There’s yard work (yes I like that too) and enjoying the fruits of those labors. There are so many many things to love about the activities, sights and smells of warm weather.

I’ve shared a few of mine and I hope you’ll share some of yours with me in a layout on our fan page!

      Paula, The Blueprint I used came out in May of 2012 and has since been retired. The content I used is still available thru your Creative Memories Consultant or . You may duplicate it if you want. It really wasn’t difficult as much of the design is on the paper in the digital content. Mary

    I wear flip flops as soon as the snow leaves until it starts again (okay slight exaggeration). But I do wear them most of spring, all summer & into the fall. I love the heat, but grew up with hot summers. Love the flip flop wreath.

    Love it Mary! Happy Summer to you. we love a lot of the same things like yellow box flip flops. (I made a wreath similar to yours, too) although I really get tired of our heat and humidity. I must copy this page.
