My Favorite Time of Year

 You know it's summertime when you can't stop breathing in the sweetness.With each breath the brain processes the air that carries with it  a hint of what heaven must smell like, and demands a larger inhale. 

Flowers all boasting scents that man could never duplicate.  The ocean with it's cleansing effects. Somehow breathing in ocean air seems to wash all negative thoughts and feelings away. What is it about the ocean that  is so healing.

 You know it's summer when I almost allow my picture to be taken.

 When you wait hours for that perfect wave..

 When a colorful umbrella is a cool prop in a photo, and not to keep the rain off you.

 You know it's summertime...
your girls

 jump for joy!

it's definitely summertime when Strawberry short cake is served for breakfast.

And when all things green and growing are in danger of being yanked out of the ground by their roots.

When bathing suits are the choice of clothing and no one is in a rush to get out bed. When no one talks about bedtime and falling asleep on the couch is okay. 

When fireflies and fairies rule the yard, yes they do exist!!

You know it's summertime when the sun and the moon battle for the extra hours and the sun easily wins.

When there is always ice cream in the freezer, and lips are stained, red , blue and purple  by freeze pops(that ones for you Miss Nellie) 

Summertime is by far my most favorite time of year. It's a time to rest,and be refreshed. How lucky we are that God considered all things, and gave us summer.

OOO I too love the girls jumping on the beach. Beautiful, and why your beautiful self doesn't get in front of the camera more I can't understand.
Awesome post, we are enjoying the wonders of summer too. Going much too fast for us though...I guess 5 weeks in Ukraine does that for you though. LOL
