Today, we're doing another Favorite Things post, talking about our favorite season.
Anyone who knows me KNOWS it isn't winter. I can't tell you how happy I am to see the tail end of that season! The other seasons I don't mind, but if hard-pressed to choose one, I'd pick summer. For several reasons.
One - I don't like being cold. And living in Minnesota... *sigh* ...it gets cold.
Two - Less running around. Oh, we're still busy in the summer with camps and trips etc, but the day-to-day running is sooooo much less than in the school months. So there's less of this....
...and more of this...
Okay, I may not be doing it up like drunk Ron Swanson, but in the summer, I definitely sleep better and have more energy.
Three - Believe it or not, I'm going to say camping trips. I know, it's a shocker, but I do enjoy myself when camping. Time with my family - immediate and extended - is awesome, and I always fine some alone time to do what I love to do...
And to be honest, it's the camping prep and set up (and then inevitible take down) is what I really hate about camping. The actual camping? I can get on board with that, and I can admit that it's part of what makes summer my favorite season.
Lots of writing happens, good food is eaten, lots of wine is consumed (by me anyway), I laugh so hard my face and belly hurt, and I get to be with some of the greatest ladies I know.
Until next week!
