So much summer, so little time. In the last two weeks or so every time my friends and I try to swim the storm clouds roll in or some other anti-swim disaster strikes. But, honestly, those have just been tiny bumps in the road. I’m really just sad to see the signs that summer will be gone soon (It’s probably my favorite season). There’s something wonderful about the summer life.Good thing I’m ending on a high with a little getaway with my friends soon.
In the meantime, here are some of the reasons I’ll miss summer:
Don’t laugh. Yes, I’m not the sportiest girl around, but there’s something so pleasant about watching a game with blue skies overhead and a hot dog in your hand. Just don’t make me tell you what’s going on.
Summer foods are the best! In addition to ice cream, sorbet, popsicles, and the like, I love grabbing a cool drink. Whether it’s a McDonalds diet coke (the best deal around) or a Sonic Cherry Limeade Slush a good drink can make a summer evening just right.
Visits from Friends
I love it when I get to benefit from other people’s summer vacations :D My friend Kimberly came into town this year and it was great to see her and her girls!
The Farmers market is a summer must! Yummy food, great produce, and interesting craft booths. Always a good time!
Salt Lake has these in ample supply. Most recently I caught American Graffiti at Big Cottonwood Park. I really, really, really loved the film noir series at the Gallivan. They also show movies at Capitol Hill and in Park City. One of the most unique outdoor movie experiences I had this summer was getting to watch Sandlot at the actual Sandlot. The movie was filmed in Salt Lake and for the 20th anniversary they showed the film and brought in the director and a lot of the cast.
A summer wedding is pretty much guaranteed and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to post something about my good friend Teal’s wedding. This girl has been a great friend to me since the day I was born and she had a beautiful wedding (Such a happy, crazy in love couple!).
So this doesn’t even begin to cover all the wonderfulness of summer (Maybe a part two is in order? At the very least I need to chronicle my garden/plant journey this year), but it’s a good start.
Currently: watching celebrity wife swap?! Yeah, that’s happening. But after that I’m going to finish rearranging my room (I dragged everything out of place after I got an impulse to switch things up. Some things still need a new home).
