Finding Summer

When I hear about someone’s wonderfully lazy, relaxing, multiple novel reading, refreshing, summer vacation, I feel super nostalgic for the summers of my youth: No work. No school. No responsibility.  And (what seemed like) endless stretches of time.

As an adult who does not take summer breaks, I find summer in the small moments like harvesting basil for homemade pesto, watching an afternoon thunderstorm roll in, wearing flip flops, and digging my feet in the hot sand after a dip in a cold alpine lake.

And on the weekends, oh those summer weekends, I like to get out of the house and try really hard to forget that I have to go back to work on Monday.

Hobart Weekend
It’s Friday evening and I’m so ready for a weekend in the woods (Thea took this one.).

It wouldn’t be camping without, ahem, a breakfast beer.

The gang’s all here!

Weekends like this are the best way for me to find summer.  How about you?
