it's the smell of honey in the air.

summer just has a different feeling than the other seasons.
it's the feeling that it's okay to spend hours
(or even whole days)
doing absolutely nothing productive.
it's a feeling that makes you want to expose your toesies,
craft homemade lemonade, and have impromptu picnics.
it's the feeling of putting away the award-winning fiction
you read on cold, dark winter nights
and pulling out something easy & light, just for fun.
it's the feeling that the end of your workday is really
just the start of the real day,
because the sun will still be up for hours!
it's the feeling that having sun-lightened, crunchy, salty hair
is suddenly the best kind of hair to have.
it's the feeling that no matter what you're doing in that moment,
whether you're sitting at a desk bored out of your mind
or sleeping in until noon,
the next great adventure is just around the corner.

 happy first day of summer!

  10. Hi Meg,
    I stumbled upon your blog by chance (I think a book blogger that I'm working with follows your blog) and the title got me. :) Do you review books on here? I could send you a free ebook if you would like to consider reading and reviewing my debut novel GRAY, by Rachel Karns. You can look it up before answering (on Amazon.com) It's Young Adult realistic fiction... an easy quick read... hopefully fun, too. Just thought I'd throw it out there, because your blog is great! rachelkarns@gmail.com


i love reading your comments - please drop me a note to say hi!
