Summer Inspiration

Lanikai Beach, Oahu (Hawaii)
This was actually taken in December in Hawaii!

When I close my eyes and try to imagine the perfect summer, I see sandy beaches, bikinis, sunny days, salt water, and comfortable style. In Hawaii, I had all those things year-round, even in December if the weather was nice. It's interesting to finally live in a place that goes through seasons. It seems like the summer weather here in Charleston is either super sunny and hot or rainy and humid. There have been a lot of thunderstorms and rain, but we also have sunny days. It feels quite random. However, I think the bad weather helps me appreciate the nice days even more. I know that I took the tropical weather in Hawaii for granted. I miss those sunny days and the tradewinds. I miss being able to swim, snorkel, and dive 365 days of the year. Ah, my heart! One of these days I'm gonna have to try scuba diving off the coast here. :)

 Beach days and sunshine forever! Summer isn't over yet.


  1. Ooh, love the new logo on your blog! :D
    Actually, it feels that summer has just started for me here in NYC. We had a long tiring winter and a very little bit of spring, so no complaints here.

    1. Thanks! I got bored and said, "Why not?!"
      Oh, yeah. Our winter was long, too. (You can slap me!) This is my first summer here in the south and it is pretty hot and humid. But I'm not complaining either because it is way better than having to deal with freezing rain. I don't want summer to end! Though I am curious to see if we will have a Fall. :)
