10 Things We Love about Summer
May 29, 2012
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but summer is almost here! We’ve put our jackets and boots away to make room for sun hats, flip-flops and beach towels. But summer is much more than that. It’s fun. Fresh. Joyful.
We’ve created a Summer board on Pinterest (follow us!) and tried to define summer in 10 colourful photos. What is summer for you? We’d love to know!
10.Â Summer is for making wish lists
It’s thinking about the things you’d like to do, places to see, food to eat.
9. Summer is strawberries and peach pies.
Get them from your neighbourhood bakery or make your own: buy a pie crust, fill with diced fruit, top with sugar syrup and bake for a few minutes.
8. Summer is for the lazy
It’s the perfect moment to take a day or two off, read a book, watch the scenery from a plane or just lay around on a sandy beach.
7. Summer is for making lemonade
Make more than you need and share it with your friends and neighbours.
6. Summer is for water fights!
You don’t even need fancy water guns, grab a bottle of water, a cup or a bucket and start the fight (it’s the only kind of fight we’d suggest starting.Â Maybe this one and pillow fighting, but we’ll keep that for colder times).
5. Perfect blue skies
Every morning, for days and days. And if it rains it’s still fun.
4. Summer is perfect for ice-cold Manhattans
Bitter-sweet, fresh and colourful. Perfect on the beach, in your garden or on a hotel terrace.
3. For popsicles!
You can make them out of fruit juice, yogurt or your own mix. Here’s a list of popsicle ideas for hot summer days.
2. Summer is for trying new things
New food, new sports, new places.
1. But ultimately, summer is for having fun with the ones you love
Have a great summer, everyone
