I always like remembering things from back-in-the-day when it was summertime. They always seemed to be so much better when I was 5-years-old with bruises everywhere from playing sports and falling, from chasing each other up trees, and screaming at the top of our lungs. I could run for miles without getting tired and I would get dirty within two minutes of being outside. We chewed on ice and sprayed each other with hoses until we were soaked to the bone. I remember chasing down the ice cream man and buying all of his Airheads with the money I got from mowing everyone's lawns. We never wore sandals and we laughed until our stomachs felt like they were going to burst. Yes, those were definitely awesome summers. 

Summer is the time of year where you show off how much working out has paid off and is filled with the clacking sound of flip flops. Summer romances, summer jobs, and summer fun. That's what it's all about. You work all day and spend your night at the lake with friends. Fun is probably the main word that is included in summer. The majority of us have done some growing up though so we just continue with our day-to-day lives with the same attitude. I don't know about you, but that sounds rather boring. And it is, which is the sad part. 

My main point to this: have fun! I've been seeing a bunch of people lately that have been stressed to no end and with just continuous worry lines. I know, I'm one of them. Times definitely aren't how they used to be and we're all going through some rough patches. However, just try and let go of the worries for just one day each week and smile. Giggle until your heart bursts and soak up this amazing sun. Summer only comes once a year and that swimming pool is just calling your name. Call over a bunch of friends and have a BBQ, play some basketball, do some arts an crafts, whatever that heart of yours desires! Do something you love and just have fun doing it. Get a tan! Buy a surf board that you will most likely never use! Go on the biggest slide at the water park and scream as loud as you can! Just have some summer fun. 

I plan to finish up some college stuff and planning a trip to the lake next week and then possibly Six Flags. Sweet. Moments like those just make me wish it could be summer forever. However, it can't so we need to cherish these moments. I might also make some pizza, but I'm afraid to turn on the oven. 

Those snow cones look amazing,
