I feel like every year around this time I put together some sort of summertime inspiration post. I haven't dug through the archives, but I vaguely remember doing something similar last June, and something the summer before last as well. So maybe it's repetitive for me to be doing it again, but I'm cool with that if you guys are.
Summer is my soulmate season, and as the weather here gets warmer and warmer and I'm getting to spend more and more time outside, all of summer's sweetest stereotypes are filling my head and my heart (so, so cheesy, but so, so true). I'll admit that I look at summer in a fairly idealistic way - because the truth is, I'm usually inside working at my computer or wrangling a toddler during the day, and too exhausted at night to do much more than eat nachos while falling asleep to Netflix. But I live for those summertime weekends and road trips, where my senses take over and I get to feel sand under my feet and taste juicy sweet watermelon slices and listen to live music under the stars and smell crackling campfires and watch fireflies dance around the sky.
The images you see here remind me of these moments, and of the things I love most about what I consider to be the best time of the year. Whether you're a fellow summer lover or just an occasional summer appreciator, I hope these pictures get you excited for the season of sunshine and fun.
