Happy Friday, everyone! I've had this little lady for months by now, and I think she deserves to show her face.

She is, in my eyes, the epitome of Summer:

The illustration of one of its varying days is what makes it perfect: the sight of the sun early in the mornings, lighting up the bedroom filled with soft cotton pillows and sheets; hearing songs of cicadas lounging in mocha-colored branches of swaying trees outside the house; the feel of fresh, cool showers with the warm sun beaming through the curtains, the touch of soft linen scarves tied around tousled brown waves; the tart taste of plants and herbs from the tiny, thriving garden to be used in homemade recipes with sweet fruit for dessert; lying in the green, sweeping blades on the white sheet, looking up at the movement of the puffy clouds swimming their way across the piercing blue sky; and the lingering of the golden sun late into the evenings as the crickets prepare for melodies late into nightfall.

I love Summer for so many other reasons as well, and I can't help but really look forward to it every year. 

So what about you? Are you a Summer lover?
