I can’t wait for summer because…

Happy first day of spring! This one is always tough for me because it never actually looks like the first day of spring around here. The 3-4 inches of snow we got two days ago really put a damper on the thought. BUT….I do know nicer weather is on the way and for that I am extremely excited.

I’m joining in on a fun link-up that I found from Running Bun who got it from Helene in Between. 

The subject: I can’t wait for summer because…

1. We can grill outside and actually hang out outside while we grill.

2. We don’t need to wear ten layers when going outside.

3. Warm sunshine on my skin and Vitamin D!

4. Walks.



5. Hanging out at the lakes. I didn’t get to do much of this last summer but I think this summer will be different!

6. Summer dresses and weddings!

7. Watermelon and corn on the cob.



K, I am starting to realize that this post could be a mile long. I’m so excited for the warmer weather!!

Finish the sentence: I can’t wait for summer because…

    Okay, I have a few things.

    First: I LOVE THAT DRESS. It is one of my favorites I’ve ever seen at a wedding ever.

    Second: if you venture to the lakes more, you better call me because I live a mile away from Calhoun!

    Third: I can’t wait for summer because of ALL THE THINGS.

    Love you.

      Love you.

    I agree with every single one of your reasons. Warm, summer weather cannot come soon enough! Bring on the fresh, homegrown food!!

      Yes! Farmer’s markets should have gone on my list!

    I can’t wait for summer because it means I don’t have to put hats, coats, boots and gloves on the kids! Shoes on and out the door we go!

  5. My actual list for why I can’t wait for summer would be insanely long, too – I literally have a dream 2-3 nights a week now about being outside in the summer time!
