  1. my fave things about the summer are the sun, being warm, a warm breeze, sunny day sand not being cold - do you see a theme? ;)

    hey beauty, i nominated you for an award on my blog - it's cheesy i know, but heart-felt :)

  2. I really like your summer painting, very summery feeling.

    I love being warm, smelling the summer evening, Christmas, New Years BBQ, ice blocks.

  3. Beautiful list and painting, Sarah! :) I like ... the sounds and smells of summer, cool, quiet summer mornings, picnic dinners, fresh fruit, summer night skies + sitting under the stars, reading in the park or by the pool ... etc. :)

  4. I love everything on your list Sarah, especially the salt air in the evening. I love lying on the beach listening to the waves, building drippy castles, going to the Cape, summer arts festivals, Dairy Queen, and collecting treasures at the beach.
    Happy Summer--now it just needs to get warmer : )

  5. you lucky thing...i WISH it was Summer here, but it's winter in my part of the world, and a very cold one at that. I am not liking it ONE bit. My favourite things about Summer are thunderstorms, BBQs at the beach, Aussie Christmases, prawn cocktails, and eating out by the water on a hot night.

    Sarah, you inspire me SOOO much! I just wanted to let you know that, too :)

  6. my five favorite things include, longer days, vacations, cocktails around the pool, reading the newspaper and having coffee outside in the morning, and, that summer leads to fall, which is my favorite season.

    happy weekend!
