What I Love About Summer!

Honestly, I just stole this idea.  I was visiting another blog (elevate ideas) and she had a list like this and I felt so inspired!  It’s funny because my two littlest one and my niece and I were floating and swimming in the pool this afternoon and I was telling them what I loved most about each season and summer is my favorite!


  • I love the smell of sweat in my little boys’ hair as I kiss them good-night.
  • The sound of my kids playing together in their room.
  • The sound of my teenagers laughing as they read together.
  • The way the hot, dry sun bakes down on my skin and it feels like God is kissing me.
  • The smell of the salty ocean air as it blows through my hair.
  • Sitting on my front porch in the evening and listening to the frogs calling and searching for just the right mate.
  • The flowers…oh I do love the flowers.
  • And hummingbirds!  Just the sight of them brings a smile to my face.
  • Long days that seem like they could last forever but end it a brilliant sunset that makes me gasp from its beauty.
  • Fireflies.  They signal to one another…searching…
  • Warm rain falling on my head as I walk outside in a summer shower.  I always stop to look up and let the warm drops hit me in the face.  They wash the worries away.
  • A quick thunderstorm.  We sit together on our front porch watching it.  snuggled in blankets to stay warm and dry.
  • I love my garden in full summer.  The food it gives in abundance for our family daily.
  • Talking in quiet tones on the front porch with my husband after the kids are in bed.
  • The smell of fresh cut grass.  The smell fills my soul with life.


What do you love about summer?  I know I could keep going.

  1. I love this! 🙂 Fresh cut grass is one of my all-time favorites. And nothing beats gentle whispers with my love on the porch. Thanks for visiting!
