If I am anything, I am a summer girl.
I love flip flops,
Splashing around in the swimming pool,
Basking in the warm summer rays.
I love the way my skin glows from a natural tan,
I love that I can leave the house with my kids
without the hassle of jackets, hats and gloves.
I love that the sun glows until bedtime,
And rises long before we get up.
But like pretty much everything in life,
Summer is only a season.
A beautiful, glorious time that passes way to quickly.
Normally, this time of year leaves me really bummed out,
I HATE being cold.
So I have decided to cheer myself up with a list of all the little things that make me happy about fall/winter:
1: The crisp smell of fall air
2: The amazing colors of all the trees and bushes
5: Roasting marshmallows on bonfires
6: Snuggling under the covers with my munchkins and my hubby
7: Hot cocoa
8: The apple orchard, and all the apples and doughnuts that come with it
9: Halloween, and how excited my kids are to dress up every year
10: My son Anthony’s birthday
11: Thanksgiving: food, fun and family time.
12: The way my boys eyes glow every time there is a fresh snow
13: Catching snowflakes on our tongues
14: Christmas (enough said).
15: Warm, fuzzy sweaters
16: Christmas music and how happy it makes me feel inside
18: Apple pie, pumpkin pie, any pie.
19: Slipper socks
20: Peppermint ice cream
So there are just a few of the little things that I have to look forward to over the next couple of months.
What are some of your favorite parts of this time of the year?
After all, it’s the little things that make all the difference =]
