Somehow it sort of crept up on me, but apparently summer is pretty much here now. Although my mixed emotions about the season have been well-documented on this blog, right now I find myself daydreaming mostly about the fun aspects of summer. The seasons keep turning whether we're ready for it or not, so we might as well try to enjoy the ride, am I right?
What are you looking forward to this summer? I'm excited about popcorn-worthy movies, both at the drive-in and in the cool of an air-conditioned theater. Plentiful fresh produce. Baseball games. Frosty beverages, popsicles, and ice cream. Picnics. Fireworks. Adventures big and small.
Summer and adventure seem to go together, don't they? No matter how long we've been out of school, summer makes us think of freedom, of lazy days and endless unstructured stretches of time. Whether that's the reality or not is another matter, of course! Things aren't looking too promising for a real vacation this summer, but I'm hoping Anthony and I can get our free time and spare cash to align enough to take at least a little mini-break or two.
I'm not hard to please, really. Sure, I wouldn't say no to a swanky bed and breakfast or a week at the beach, but I'm the kind of gal who can also have fun just cruising down the highway with my head out the window (optional: tongue flapping in the breeze like a big dog on a joy ride), stopping to take pictures of weird signs and statues. And if nothing else, there is always, always, some sort of silliness to get up to here in the ATL.
Whatever summer adventures I find myself in, you can be sure I'll post about it all (or at least the not-so-incriminating parts...) here on the blog.
Here's a video that takes me back to those carefree summers of yore, when I was still too young to have a job, and spent those long hot days hanging out with my friends, either at the pool or in somebody's air-conditioned living room watching MTV. Hee.
