Friend Makin Monday

A quick post today, about all the fantastic reasons to love summer. In fact, the top ten reason to love summer.

If you want to play along, you can join the FMM fun at Kasey's blog.

Here go's my ten loves of summer:

1. Longer days. I love the sun setting in the evening rather then the afternoon.

2. The smells of fresh cut grass and hay. Even the cows and horses smell better in the summer.

3. How the sun turns my boy's hair to a light light blond which brings out the amazingness of their bright blue eyes.

4. Getting to relax in my comfy chair, under a big oak tree and read a book while a breeze blows. (a rarity, but nice when it happens)

5. No snow to shovel. No worry of snow to shovel.

6. Lounging in a pool listening to the giggles of my boys. Granted its a baby pool and there is no man servant bringing me cold drinks with little umbrella's but still, its a good life.

7. Flip- flops and painted toenails.

8. Dinner grilled on the bbq, never complete without corn on the cob.

9. Lemonade on the porch with my boys.

10. A new baby boy! (Thankfully not every summer, that my friends could get out of hand!)


  1. Yes, certainly don't want a boy every summer...every other summer?

  2. That's a fantastic summer list. Lemonade, a book, a breeze... isn't that summer perfection? (except give me a slurpee instead of lemonade)

  3. A good book....yes! Finally, this summer, I am getting my husband to put up a hammock for me in the shade so I can finally enjoy a good book and still keep my eye on the kids in the yard!! And, I bet if you gave the kids a box of little umbrellas, they would make you a drink - it may have 50 umbrellas in one glass of lemonade, but I bet they would do it for you, LOL

  4. Great list...


    I love to read and sitting under a tree sounds so nice!

    Happy FMM.

  5. Thats a cute little meme!
