I'd love it if Portland would catch up to the rest of the country and get warm! Today looks promising but you never know:)

Sarah said...

Wear skirts, and dresses, and sunglasses. Drink pink wine, and pink bubbles! Eat fresh tomatoes straight from the garden. Visit BC.Put my toes in an ocean, swim in an ocean, and lay in the sand. Eat popcicles, grill pineapple, make jalapeno poppers, look at the stars, kiss my boyfriend, and stay in love!

my summer is on the french riviera this year and i'm planning on soaking up this study abroad experience as much as i can. i'm laying on the beaches, eating the food, traveling to nearby cities and countries, making memories and staying in love with my deployed boyfriend. this is my perfect summer.

Lady Grey said...

Hooooray! Isn't it marvellous?!!
Definitely the best time of year, by far!

Sarah said...

Yes, my husband will be doing some cliff diving soon I'm sure. I'll be watching from afar being brave and trusting the Lord he won't crack his scull on the one rock in the whole lake.

Yay!! I am so excited and happy that summer is here. Of course in the south--it has felt like summer for weeks! We are hitting 100 degrees today and I guess that is appropriate. So it is great fresh glass of lemonade and a walk on the beach tonight with my two pups and husband.

I love summer! The heat, humidity and sun have over the years become some of my best friends. [Music festival, a week in Philly, long days on the beach and even longer nights accompanied buy fire, roasted marshmallows and acoustic guitars, Crabbing, fishing with my dad, getting a tan, visiting my great aunt in NY, getting my visa to China and just having an everyday fantastic summer!]

Nicola Dent said...

I live in the North East of England so what I wish for is an actual summer. Sunshine has been sadly lacking the last few years so hoping this year might be different. xx

Natalie said...

I also live in Ireland, and all i hope for is more sun, it rained for the last 3-4 weeks, almost every day, we never had above 17. It is normal for Ireland, spring summer & autumn are all the same, very changable: rain rain, sun, rain rain rain, sun sun, rain rain rain rain...
This summer i didn't even bother getting my summer stuff out...
Lucky you living on the other side of the globe :)

Lorna Jane Active said...

I can't wait for it to be summer again in Australia, although I must admit winters here are pretty special (not too cold & the sun still shines).

Biggest rule of summer: get outdoors, keep active & most importantly have fun.

Love
