Lets just talk about a few things that for me, truly evoke a sense of summer.
Juicy mangoes. Coconut sunscreen. Windows down. Music Blaring. Pretty dresses. Tan lines. Late nights. Sleeping on the beach. Crackle of camp fires. Slap of thongs on the pavement. Doing the quick dash across the boiling sand. Lemonade. Ripped shorts. Hair to your waist. Days so hot you don't move. Sleeping without sheets on the bed. Cicadas as loud as a rock band. Sand in everything. Road trips. Frogs at night. Banana smoothies. Salty hair. Heat. Late afternoon swims. The humble sausage sandwich. Perfectly blue skies. Afternoon storm clouds. Running through the rain. Watermelon ice-cream. Wandering for hours. Love.
I know that basically that sounds like a huge list of cliche's, but we all know that summer is in fact a terribly cliched month...that's what makes it so special. And I hope by reading this terribly cliched list of cliches', where ever you are in the world, you're feeling a little bit warmer. (And yes I just said the word 'cliche' 4 times in one paragraph)
