As the days become longer, and the sun shines warmer and brighter, my mind turns towards the impending Summer.
Each season has its own beauty, of course.
Autumn is aflame with the majestic reds and golds of falling leaves.
Winter is the romance of a misty haze and the sound of rain falling on roof tops while we snuggle cosily in our warm beds.
Frivolous Spring makes us giddy with delight, fragrant blossoms fill the air and the earth, once again, is reborn.
Then there is Summer.
Long, hot, beautiful Summer.
Frolicking at the beach!
Sweet delicious cherries and juicy watermelons.
Lazy siestas sleeping under a shady tree.
The chirping of crickets and cicadas, our lullaby for hot, Summer nights.
Icy poles and ice creams.
(Pistachio gelati for me).
Squirting the children with the garden hose as they squeal with delight, then running for my life as they chase me with buckets of water. (Of course, I let them catch me!).
Isn't it romantic?
And the dresses.
I love Summer dresses.
Summer dresses teamed with espadrilles.
I can't wait to unravel the heavy layers of Winter and pop into a frock.
I love the gentle feeling of a cooling breeze as it swirls about my bare legs, it's like my dress is dancing.
A summer dress makes me feel like Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor.
Girly and twirly.
Fitted in all the right places.
My curves, long hidden, come out to play.
Summer has a rhythm that I just can't wait to dance to.
Are you looking forward to Summer?
