Celebrating Summer

I'm having a hard time believing we've already reached the last weekend in June. Every year, I make a mental note to take time to fully enjoy summer and all the things I love about it. To savor the season the way I did when I was little.

But, for some reason, time refuses to move as slowly as it did then. As much as I adore Fall and the sweaters, boots, and tights that come with it, I always find myself surprised by its arrival and slightly disappointed another summer has come and gone without feeling I've celebrated it to its fullest.

While my days don't promise to be leisurely this summer, I am trying to make sure I embrace as many of my favorite things about this time of year as I can; I am hoping this will help me feel I enjoyed the season as much as possible by the time cool air start to blow again.

I've made my most-loved gazpacho recipes and experimented with new additions. I've enjoyed Hawaiian Shaved Ice, gelato, frozen yogurt, and popsicles, foods I enjoy year-round, but are certainly required eating in hotter months. I've even been able to spend a couple hours lakeside.

I intend to keep adding to my list over the coming months, and I am going to do some work towards reaching my goal right now as E and I head out to grab some of our favorite gelato! I hope whatever your plans, your weekend is full of simple delights of the season too. Have a great one!

courtney, i, too, can't believe it's almost the end of june. how did that happen?? at the end of last summer (where i was too busy to enjoy it) i made a mental note to try to take it easy and enjoy this one. enjoy some true summer activities. uh, so far, not good. of course weather had a lot to do with it... lots of drizzly rain up until this last week. but this past week was beautiful and sunshiney... i'm hoping it's a turning point and that summer is in full force! enjoy your summer! pam

ps you find the best images.

I always associate summer with great ice cream.

it is true when you are an adult the summer isn't the same because of all your responsibilities and rushing around in life... I too can't believe we have reached the end of June. I will make a point of eating more ice-cream in July and August. Lovely pictures x

Wow, you're right, we're half way through 2010. Where does the time go? I think I'll take your lead to slow down and enjoy these days of summer like I did as a kid. Fall will be here soon enough and summer needs to be savored.
I love these photos by the way and am suddenly craving a popsicle!

My uncle told me when I was a kid "the older you get the faster life goes". I never forgot that phrase. Been fighting it ever since!!

Having this cool delicacies during summer is simply what defines summer. I mean, summer can't be considered a beautiful summer without these refreshers. Otherwise it will be just plain summer.

What's really nice about this time of the season is when your family gathers and share a gallon of ice cream with all the happy faces.
