I was walking my dog earlier this week and heard the cicadas, which I have to say, I love the sound of cicadas. It reminds me of growing up playing capture the flag in my neighborhood. It just makes me think of summer. So for the rest of my walk, I was thinking about all the things I love about summer. Here’s what came to mind:
The sound of cicadas.
Warm summer nights.
The smell of BBQ.
Actually having or going to a BBQ.
Spending time on my new patio.
Pools. (Hoping my next home or neighborhood has a pool — not planning on moving anytime soon though).
Walking the dog late at night.
Dining al fresco late into the night under bistro lights.
Tomato and peach season.
4th of July festivities.
Late dinners out with friends drinking wine.
American flags hanging all over my neighborhood.
The feeling of a fresh start when fall comes.
