Top Five Best Things About Summer

To follow up my Negative Nancy post about the things I hate most the summer, I’m bringing you my top five favorite things about this season.

***Flips Flops – who doesn’t love the fact that when the weather’s warm you can slide on a pair of cheap flip flops with a cute dress and you’re ready to go. No painful high heels or stuffy boots, just open freedom of the feet.

***Longer Days – I’m definitely one of those people that experiences the symptoms of Season Affective Disorder (SAD). As the days get colder and darker, so does my mood. That is why I love the long summer days when the sun stays out longer and lifts my mood!

***Barbecues – this season is a great time to get a big group of friends and family together for a cookout. Grab some hot dogs, burgers, bun and beer and you’ve got a great party in the making

***Beach time – I love the ocean and although I live four hours away from the closest beach I always make it a point to make at least two road trips every summer to beaches in Charleston, Hilton Head, St. Simon, etc. You just can’t beat the beach experience.

***Flowers – Take a walk around your neighborhood and enjoy all of the fresh greenery and flowers in bloom. The air even smells different during the summer because of all the delicious flowers.
