It’s getting mighty warm around here. Today is supposed to get to the high-80s which pleases me because I’m going with a friend to see Brad Paisley tonight! (It’s May in Upstate NY, it could be cold and rainy, but it’s not tongiht!)
Ellie is a great concert date. We saw Toby Keith last summer so when she asked if I wanted to get the Country Mega Ticket (and it was on sale) I jumped at the chance for 3 girls nights out with her. (They’re lawn tickets so if you want to join us, just let me know!)
Summer around here brings some pretty awesome things including ice cream places and decks opening, live music, sipping adult beverages in the sunshine by the creek, lake, or pool, bonfires, grilled foods, star gazing, (legitimate) flip flop weather, water fights, and more.
While there’s a lot I love about winter (snowfall, curling up in front of the fire, hot chocolate, extra layers of clothes, crock pot cooking, “comfort” foods, etc) the summer brings certain delights and special moments too.
Three things I’m specifically looking forward to this summer are:
- Concerts! I have tickets to the following already: Brad Paisley, Florida Georgia Line, Matchbox 20 & Counting Crows, Luke Bryant, and Alabama Shakes. I’m thinking about Straight No Chaser & Postmodern Jukebox, Willie Nelson, and Old Crow Medicine Show. Maybe a few others I can’t think of at the moment.
- Summer off of Saturdays at the pool (well this is my current plan) I’ll fill in here and there and teach a few private lessons, but it’s been a really long time since I’ve done this and I think it’s time.
- Sitting by the water or in my “tree house”. Cold drink in one hand, book in another, Pandora playing…Right now that sounds amazing. Just have to suss out the non-work bathing suit situation.
That’s just a little bit of what I hope the summer brings. What are you looking forward to this summer?
