Aaahhh summer.. It really is a magical time. There is something about summer that makes us feel rejuvenated and refreshed about life. I’m not sure how some of you living in year-round warm climate feel, but for us folks who live where it’s winter almost 8 months of the year, summer is our favourite season. There are numerous things I love about this season so I really had to focus to narrow it down to my top 5 favourites.
# 5. Wearing less clothing.
In the fall, winter and spring, I find myself wearing up to 5 layers of clothing at a time. While I love layering my clothes, being able to slip into a light summer dress and step out of the house makes my mornings so much easier. I don’t have to rush around the house looking for my missing scarf or mitten and don’t have to spend 5 minutes getting into my long boots. I love being able to get ready so quickly and effortlessly.
Growing my own plants, herbs and vegetables bring me such joy! I love being able to step into my backyard and pick some fresh basil leaves to throw on top of pizza or whip up a quick basil pesto sauce! I find myself loving being more creative with food recipes when I have an abundant supply of ingredients in my own backyard. There is something therapeutic about taking care of plants and watching them sprout and grow.
There seems to be beautiful flowers everywhere you look in the summer, and I love it! The bright colour and different designs brighten up my day. Planting flowers in a pot ensures they last longer and you can decorate any space with them whether it be a dinner table of outdoor patio.
#2. Music Festivals.
Each year we try to make it to at least one music festival during the summer time. Music festivals are a great atmosphere to enjoy good music while relaxing and being outdoors with friends. We also swear the positive energy at music festivals is contagious!
# 1. Swimming!!
By far my favourite thing about summer is being able to go swimming outdoors and drying off in the sunlight! There is nothing I enjoy more than relaxing in the water on a pool float with a nice cold drink.
Hope you all get your dose of Vitamin D this summer! 😎
