It’s summer time & as always the sun is burning bright here in the sunny state of Florida. So I am really determined to become a beach bum this summer. I never really liked Florida, being a New Yorker (born & breed) But as I get older I am learning to appreciate my surroundings more often. There are many places I would love to see…maybe even move to. Some places on my mind are Chicago, D.C, Seattle, LA, Upstate NY to name a few. So who know’s if I’ll ever come back to Florida (I might as well enjoy it while I can) we all know that life can change in a blink of an eye. So here are some things I am really looking forward to this summer in the sunshine state.
I’m really looking forward to hitting up Siesta Key this summer. I can honestly say that it is the most beautiful beach I have ever been to in my life. The sand is pure white and never gets hot & the water is crystal blue…not to mention the guys are to die for.
Reading is one of my all time favorite things to do. I am really excited that I have some free time to catch up on some classics. I’ve never read Moby Dick or The Sound and The Fury. I’m used to reading a lot of chick lit, so I am trying to get into some serious reading. Ever since I read East of Eden by John Steinbeck, I have been trying to read more of classics.
One thing I really love about summer is that almost everyone is free to meet up and have a good time. I remember having family barbecue’s almost every weekend when I was younger and it felt so good to be surrounded by so much family. (and trust me I have a really big family…I have over 35 cousins….and that’s just first cousins 0_o) So I am really looking forward to getting the family together.
Oh yeahhh! That’s right guys. I’m busting out the neon nail polish. Since it’s summer time, it’s all about the bright colors. I never really liked the neon look before, but I have to admit that it has really grown on me. I’m the type of person that get’s set in my way’s, so I’m branching out of my comfort zone & I’m really liking it so far. Can’t wait to see what else this branching out thing has in store for me.
I know you can have popsicle’s anytime of the year…but let’s be completely honest. For some reason they are just so much better when you are walking down the street on a hot summer day. Nothing beats the classic popsicle on a day like that. If you don’t believe me, then just try it. My favorite is strawberry and grape…but really I’ll take any flavor hehe. They are just so good.
Now I leave you with a song that I will be enjoying all summer long. Hope you enjoy. This is called “Look Away” by Lissie.
