summer is my jam

TREES-723x1024IT is here. I look forward to it all year long. It makes me smile, my heart beats faster, and I am giddy with anticipation. Summer…my favorite season. Summer is my jam.

This summer I am excited for a quite a few things.

  • Beach Nights. Every Thursday evening we head down to the beach with our friends to surf, eat, talk, and watch the sunset. It’s the best. Beach Days with my Jr. High girls are going to be pretty rad too!
  • Using the Grill. Most of the year we are indoors and I’m doing the cooking (which I love). But, in the summer I take advantage of my husbands grilling skills (which he loves…I think). I am excited to make white fish with lemon, olive oil, tomatoes, shallots, and garlic. You just throw it all in a covered pan on the grill and when it’s all done you dip crusty bread in the amazing sauce.
  • Wearing Dresses. I wear dresses all year long, but it’s nice to have warmer weather and not worry if I am going to get cold. Plus I love the beach bum style and more of those options become available during summer.
  • Neighborhood Walks. Looking forward to the night that we take a walk after dinner and it’s still 75 degrees at 8pm. Holding hands with the man I love and praising the God we love. So dreamy.
  • San Onofre Beach Camping. Camping 20 feet from the water? Sure…I mean YES PLEASE. My favorite camping trip ever has been to San Onofre State Beach. You’re in and out of the water all day, the sun is warm, the drinks are cold, and you get to hear the waves as you drift off to sleep. Plus, it’s just a 5 minute drive to San Clemente for a walk around downtown. AND this year I hope to try paddle-boarding for the first time ever.
  • Freckles & Sunscreen. I love getting a tan, for me, equals I love getting more freckles. I always say I like to get a little burnt so I can get a base layer of freckles. Ha! However, that can only last so long. With my milky white complexion, sunscreen is my friend. It smells like a tropical island or a coconut and it reminds me of childhood.
  • Popsicles. Watermelon, berry, lime, pineapple…cold and refreshing. It’s happening.

What are YOU looking forward to/excited about this summer? I would love to hear it!
