Happy First Day of Summer!
Wow, believe it or not but I just realized today is the first day of summer. I've just been so busy that I forgot all about it. So happy summer, guys! Sorry it's so late.
Funny, I'm usually not that excited about summer but for some reason this year I have been and real I'm happy that it's here. I don't even mind that it's taken my wonderful and beautiful spring away. Because for one thing I think this year I really got my share of that season. I was out constantly, I almost always had the windows open so I could hear the birds, I took a gazillion pictures to capture it all that way and the whole time I was really drinking it all in. I don't think I could have experienced it any more than I did this year.
And also, as I said, I'm looking forward to summer. The smell of fresh cut grass, the awesome sounds of crickets and cicadas, outstandingly gorgeous summer flowers (like one of my new favorites, Black-eyed Susans), trips to the beach, fully green trees, blue skies, puffy clouds, perfect picnics and that overwhelming and beautiful sense of summer. It sounds great.
