I have made no secret around here that I love summer time. The reasons, that I love summer, are numerous.
Also, I have made no qualms about sharing my loathing of winter for cold temperatures, snow and more.
But right about now, summer is about half way in now. Plus, we recently returned from our summer vacation at Disney World. It was definitely summer weather there. We also celebrated our older daughter’s eight year old birthday two days after we returned (more on that to come soon).
But not going to lie when I say I am a bit bummed after the coming back from our Disney summer vacation.
Luckily, I am currently planning a return sooner rather than later. But I digress on that now.
As for summer, even though it is indeed half way over, we still have half the summer left to enjoy.
So, I am trying to look at this all from the glass half full mentality not conversely the glass half empty mentality.
Therefore, I thought what better time then now to remind myself here why I do love summer while there is still time to enjoy it.
Below, check out my 5 reasons that I love summer…
1. No jackets or extra clothing needed.
Nothing to me is worse than having to put on a heavy jacket, hat, gloves, scarf, boots and more before exiting my home. Long drawn out winter months find me doing this and more.
But thankfully, summer months give a nice reprieve. Because it is during this time that I finally rewarded with not having to wear any of the above, including a jacket. Bonus, I can easily slip my feet into my flip flops and get cute pedicures, too!
2. Lazy summer mornings rule.
No rushing to get anyone out for school or before school activities. So, even though I get up before my gang to get some work done before they rise. I can also relax once my day is set up and my kids decide to actually get out of bed for the day.
Plus, I don’t have to concern myself with school outfits or hair for the day in a rush. With being the mom to two girls, trust me that this is a breath of fresh air!
3. No homework or after school activities to attend to.
Just like I don’t have to concern myself with early mornings for school, I also don’t have to worry about the dreaded homework needing to be done. Plus, there are no after school activities that I am needed to chauffeur anyone to and from.
4. The heat is on.
OK, many would probably think I am crazy for saying this. But give me the heat anyway of the week over snow or polar vortex cold temperatures. Honestly, I don’t mind being hot.
See I can easily cool down with air conditioning. But once I get cold, it takes a lot to warm me up again.
5. Yummy summer drinks can be enjoyed.
OK I am not one to overindulge often. But still, summer time has the best drinks and/or cocktails in my opinion. See give me anything with the glass half full mentality not conversely the glass half empty mentality and/or rum and I am a happy camper.
Bonus that sour and mint are a great way to also enjoy the summer with mojitos!
Therefore right about now, my glass is more than half full knowing that here there is almost 7 weeks left to enjoy of summer time before it is all over. So excuse me while I put my flip flip wearing feet up while relaxing enjoying a summer cocktail or two.

Happy (still) summer!
