These are some of the words that have ‘summer’ written all over them. Words that are linked to so  many wonderful memories. Which words say ‘summer’ to you?


  1. Unfortunately I don't like Summer so the words that come to mind are: heatwave, sweaty T shirts and hot sleepless nights. I live in the Italian interland and so I'm very far away from the sea so I cannot love this season, sorry!

  2. Loree, did you ever read the Contemporary Women's Fiction novel I recommended to you last year: Something Borrowed? It's set in summer, I just reread it this weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm gonna re-recommend it to you. A perfect, perfect vacation read.

  3. I am listening to cicadas as I write this! (Geckos and lizards are also a part of my summer vocabulary :)

  4. Stubbed big toe,apricots, plums and peaches.................sweaterless at night!

  5. I am jealous I sit at the beach with jeans and T-shirt ! It's mixed weather and today it rains ! Bad for holidays !

  6. You essentially captured all the components of a robust summer experience: mint, basil, sunshine, waves, florid sunsets....and love those geckos on the walls ;)

  7. Wow, I love your fiery sunset! Some summer words for me are salads, watermelon, sandals, monsoons and butterflies. :)

  8. Such beautiful words that capture summer so well. Although, some are very unique to your summer and I love that even more x

  9. My words would be longer days, bbqs, caponata, capers, watermelon, walks along the promenade, an unexpected refreshing breeze, and forever carrying water bottles! Loved your choice of words :)


Thanks for stopping by. I read and appreciate every one of your comments. I will do my best to reply whenever I can.
