Ten Things I Love About Summer



I wouldn’t consider myself a fan of summer. I realize by saying this, I place myself in a minority. Instead, I’m a lover of all seasons, including Wisconsin winters, but autumn is my absolute. As we begin our journey through summer, I realized, I do appreciate what the season brings so my outlook is softening.

Waking to the sound of the birds signing and listening to the chatter of crickets at night.

Throwing a pizza on the grill for supper because the grill has become the main heating source for all cooking.

Eating ice cream without an ounce of guilt just because it’s a hot day.

Listening to the sound of the wind rustling through the trees in the forest that outlines our backyard.

Drinking an ice cold beer while sitting in a big yellow lawn chair.

Skinny dipping and feeling 14 all over again.

The first bite into a homegrown tomato grown in our own yard.

Feeling the wind against my cheeks while riding a bike.

Strolling through a farmer’s market on a Saturday morning with my best girlfriend.

Walking around the fairs and eating all the food I would normally never touch.
Maybe I'm a fan of summer after all. What is it about summer that you enjoy most?
