Why Am I Talking About the Best Summer Quotes?
This probably sounds so silly to have a post about the best summer quotes, but seriously whenever I read them they just bring back happiness. I talked about it last year how I am a hardcore summertime girl. And I feel like I didn’t really elaborate that much. But at the same time, this summer I got clarity why I love summer so much.
I was also inspired to write this post when Krystal Bick from This Time Tomorrow did a post about summer quotes and she shared some of my most favorite ones!
Best & Happy Memories
Whenever I think of the best memories or happiest memories, A LOT of them take me back to Summer. Growing up, summer with my family was the best. I have a very large extended family and we are so close. All the fun things and inside jokes almost always take me back to summertime.
Also, very monumental things in my life happened during the summer. Tre and I’s first date happened in the summer, we got married in the summer, I finished chemo in the summer, had my bilateral mastectomy in the summer, etc. I think you get the point.
I am also myself and feel the most alive in the summer. I’m always in a good mood and it is so easy for me to feel motivated. The summertime is when I can actually reset myself and refresh. Most people have it in January in the new year, but to me that energy translates when the weather is warmer.
I’m also convinced I am cold blooded because I don’t mind the intense heat. The other day it was probably 100 degrees outside, and I was soooo comfortable reading my book outside on our balcony. It’s in my DNA that I can handle the heat. I am a total island girl (that loves the city life haha). I am surprised that my hot flashes from cancer treatments did not bother me at all. Of course, I still get them and it tends to happen at night… go figure haha.
Also, Chicago summers are the bomb! Haha I sound so 90’s. But seriously, Chicago becomes alive and the energy is so positive and everyone is happy. Every restaurant has outdoor seating and I love all the festivals happening in every neighborhood. For instance, last weekend I went to the Water Lantern Festival. OMG, this experience was so magical!
