I’ve decided it is my new favorite month.
It used to be May- because it signaled school coming to a close, summer beginning, and a warm weather settling in.
But now it’s July.
(I love the hot weather!)
And nothing says summer like:
Campfires and s’mores.
Barefeet and flip-flops.
The smell of sunscreen and bug spray.
All things red, white, and blue.
Really…I just love everything about July.
We’ve been up way too late these days, and I am savoring it. Laughing and chatting and eating ice cream. Even though most nights, I am begging to go to sleep while my kids are just getting going! I know this time is precious. It’s just such a fun and relaxing time of year. I am learning to savor it.
It’s a simple month filled with all the things summer is made of.
July. Enjoy it. A simple time filled with simple things. The busyness of the year is behind us and the hazy days of summer won’t last forever.
