Flip flops & bathing suits

Road trips

Collecting seashells

Hi, I came by from 'The Good Life'. I saw the ice tea and it drew me in. Where is my old giant pickle jar anyway? I love all things beachy ( because i am far from a beach). I love the Manatee monday and will have to keep checking it (o: Do you have some close by or what? Come visit a Colorado mountain Grandma.

Summer is *everything* to me! Here in Indiana it doesn't last long! So I enjoy every little moment of it!

What a great list!! I would add Corona Lights and the smell of watermelon.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

You hit several of my summery faves exactly! But also, no matter how much older i get, summer will always remind me of being about 19 years old...long beach days with my besties followed by nighttime outdoor keg parties at houses at the beach - lots of reckless and handsome skateboarding and surfing boys, and lots of fun!

I love the title of it!
