A Little Love for Summer

Autumn always has been and always will be my favorite season -- I'm pretty sure you've picked up on that already, if you been reading for any length of time -- but for the first time since I was a kid going over to Babs's house to swim every. single. day, I have discovered a new love for summer.

This summer has just been so full of things that I love; there's been swimming and travel, time with my girl, yoga, and so much grilling and good food eating. In summer's defense, past years have mostly meant, other then a week of fun in Cape Cod and some other random weekend trips, doing my best not to sweat too hard through my work clothes on my way into work in the morning, 8 hours in front of a computer, then sweating my way to the train for the ride home to our mostly not air conditioned house. By the end of this June though, I'd already spent more time in or at the pool then I had in probably the past 3 or more years combined. I already had my August tan going!

Not to mention that the almost nightly thunderstorms in Colorado throughout June were a really, really nice treat! Followed by almost a month on the road!

Next summer will be different of course. I will hopefully have regular yoga classes, and doula clients. We'll be back to a more standard week or two of vacation, and Gwen will probably need to be in a summer camp of some kind. For now though, I'm really enjoying a newfound love of what was previously a rather unappreciated season for me!


  1. It's funny because this year was also the first time I started to appreciate summer. Though I had to work, I was outside all the time in the evenings and on the weekends, swimming, having a bonfire, hiking - which I never did in previous summers. And I too realized that summer is actually really amazing <3 I guess it depends on how you celebrate it.

    1. I love that you discovered the summer love this year too! How you work the season definitely makes all the difference. :-)


Leave me some love!
