Summertime

Of all the seasons, fall is absolutely hands-down my favorite. I just LOVE everything about it. From the leaves changing and all the pretty colors (especially in the mountains!), the blue skies, the return of Gamecock football to Williams-Brice, and the cooler weather (though not so much present in Columbia ever), it all just makes me so happy. After fall, spring and winter probably tie for my second favorite season. I love winter because it is cold, and you can bundle up in warm winter coats and very cute handknits! And I like spring for its pretty flowers. Last of all, though, my least favorite season is summer. I have never been a huge fan of summer. It is always just soooooo HOT. Especially in Columbia. I hate hot weather. I like the beach, but am not a fan of all that sand! It just gets everywhere. I love being at the pool, but unless I am able to spend all my time there (which I'm not), I just do not like hot weather. However, there are some things about summertime that I can get a little excited about. After all, I try to find some things to appreciate about it. Here they are in no particular order:

- afternoon thunderstorms
- front porches
- a glass of wine
- a good book to read by the pool
- longer days
- friends
- summer concerts outdoors
- fireflies
- popsicles
- big, heavy raindrops
- cold drinks
- the 4th of July!
- grilling out
- rocking chairs
- pleasant evenings

What is your favorite season? Why? What do you like about summertime?
