The 8 Ways I’m Falling for Summer Right Now

If you haven’t noticed from my recent posts, I’m kind of falling for summer right now. Like, HARD.

I think it’s because everyone sort of takes it easy (to some degree anyway) during the summer months. People go on vacation. Everyone seems a little happier. And everything just seems more relaxed and kind of chill. Don’t you think?

With as hectic as things can get during the rest of the year, this feels like the time to just kind of soak it in. Create some memories and maybe even have a pool party. Because honestly, it doesn’t matter how many projects I have on my to-do list, the pool will forever be calling my name during this season. And I’m completely okay with that. Hope you are too. Here are 8 reasons I’m currently falling for summer…
