Summer Vibes!

Summer is here! How do I know? Just step outside and feel the heat,  you will be certain that it is indeed summer!


Five reasons why summer is AWESOME:Ian Dooley on Unsplash


  1. It’s Warm! Beach weather every day!
  2. You can where open shoes like sandals, or just go barefoot
  3. Days are longer, more time to have fun!
  4. Ice Cream!
  5. It makes you appreciate shade 🙂



Five reasons why summer ISN’T so AWESOME:

  1. SUNBURN! It isn’t summer without me getting so badly burnt that I look like a tomato…until I start to peel 😦
  2. The heat, you can’t escape it, makes you wish that it was winter again
  3. Road rage (no one has patience when the temps hit the roof)
  4. Everything melts (chocs, ice cream, ice)
  5. Mozies! They are everywhere, always biting, day and night.
