Happy Wednesday, all!
I love summer. Seriously LOVE it. Always have. Thinking of my best summer memories… SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM!
When I was little, we lived in Lower Michigan and would go up north to the UP in the summer. Driving 10-12 hours in my parents VW van, listening to classic rock, sleeping while sliding around on the slippery vinyl seat that folded out into a bed…something I’ll always think of when thinking of memories of summers past.
|Not Dad & Mom’s exact van, but it was like this…|
Those summer trips, then summers after we moved to the UP, always, always include time on my lake. Lake Superior. We lived close enough, we could ride our bikes to go swimming in the big lake. I love the water and I didn’t care if it was freezing cold, I was jumping in (not the case now that I’m older…brrrrr)
Being born on July 3rd, there was always fireworks on my birthday. When I was a kid, I was convinced (BECAUSE EVERYONE TOLD ME!! LIES!!!) that they were for me and everyone was celebrating my birthday. Even though I now know that it was not all for my fabulousness, the memories of waiting anxiously for the fireworks to start then watching the colorful explosions fill the air, those are among my favorite memories of summer.
Now, go and see what the other ladies’ consider their best summer memories. 🙂
