25 reasons to like Summer

For the first time all year, I started sweating just because I was outside. I wasn't running, I wasn't even moving, I was just sweating because it's hot. It's like 85 degrees, which means one thing to me...Summer is here.

I like summer, I really do. But I HATE the heat. So, in hopes of making myself excited about Summer I thought I'd share 25 random reasons why I like summer. Here we go.

1.) The days are longer
2.) The sound of cicadas
3.) Cookouts
4.) The sound and smell of grass being cut.
5.) School's out/people have more free time...Taylor is home.
6.) Going to baseball games
7.) People look healthier when they're tan
8.) Flip Flops are the coolest
9.) The ice cream man
10.) Vacations
11.) Beach Balls (the best ball of all)
12.) The song "Summer Lovin" from Grease
13.) Swimming
14.) Drinking light beer and gin and tonics
15.) The fact that people watch less TV in the summer.
16. ) Lemonade
17.) Wimbledon
18.) Playing sports/games outside (Volleyball, Cornhole, etc)
19.) It's slightly more acceptable to not wear pants
20.) Driving with the windows down
21.) Summertime thunderstorms
22.) Outdoor festivals (Forecastle, Abbey Road on the River, etc.)
23.) There are less things to do
24.) Taking a cool nap in the afternoon after you've done something productive in the heat.
25.) People just seem to be happier during the summertime

So there you go kiddos, don't let the heat get you down...it's all going to be a-ok! Also, feel free to comment and share some of your favorite things about summer.

Beer tastes better in the summer - whether you're sipping while cooking something on the grill, or sitting outside at a restaurant, or sitting in the surf on vacation. In fact, vacation beer might be the best!
