50+ Reasons to LOVE Summer


 50+ Reasons to LOVE Summer

Ah summer! Definitely my favourite season. I love feeling the warmth of the sun on my face, wearing open toe shoes and al fresco dining. Summer is just around the corner and I can feel the anticpation in the air! I asked some of my favourite bloggers to share what they're looking forward to the most........


1 - Not having to wear socks! Birkenstocks always -  Nelly's Cupcakes

2 -  Long days and lots of excuses to stay out all day with no worries of rain or stormy days. It just feels very free... -  Kelly Allen

3 -  Summer for me is when my work gets exciting as I get to work outdoors and get to spend time with participants that I wouldn't normally get to. Plus I get to wear short and not tracksuit bottoms  - The Girl and the Treadmill

4 - Long family days out then getting home, getting the kids to bed and being able to then sit in the garden while it's still light and hopefully warm with a cool drink and the hubby :) - A Blog's Life

5 - I love being able to sit outside watching my toddler play in (hopefully) nice, sunny weather whilst eating an ice cream! :) I also like being able to wear less layers! - Super Mummy Secrets

6 -  Picnics, even if only in the garden 😀 - Stacey in the Sticks

7 - The warmth in the air, longer days and sunshine - just makes you feel better (even if it rains) :) -  My Boys Club

'The fact that everything seems better and more hopeful!'

8 -   Having garden parties with friends and family. It just never seems to happen in the winter months. We love a BBQ! -  Champagne and Petals

9 -Locking the gates to the garden and shoving the kids outside for some quiet time lol Of course all the usual beach, picnic, walks in the park etc too but i do love a coffee in peace! lol - Country Heart and Home

10 -  Being able to get up before the kids and have a coffee outside in the garden. The first time I was able to do that when we moved from a flat to a house with a garden always stands in my mind as one of 'those' moments -  Coffee Cake Kids

11 - Summer nights with the BBQ out and camping with friends. The days feel so much longer! - Here Come the Hoopers

12 - 
The smell of a barbecue and sun screen; and more than 6 light hours in the day, Scotland is absolutely useless during Winter. I can't wait to be able to sit out on the decking and just bask in the sun (well, lack of rain).... - Life With Boys

13 - I love the fact Newcastle becomes like a continental city with outdoor tables for al fresco dining & the fantastic events we have on to keep families entertained - Canny Food

14 -   Not having to carry big coats, sandals, beer gardens, outdoor play, ice cream, natural vitamin D!!! - Seeing Rainbows

Not having to wear loads and loads of layers! I love having my limbs out!  - Raising the Rings

25 - 
Being able use the garden and hanging my washing on the line! Suburban Mum

32 - 
 The fact that everything seems better and more hopeful! Even a bad day working in the summer isn't so awful, every evening feels like a mini weekend when it's nice weather. We took to going to the beach often on a weekday night and it just makes you forget the rest of your day! -  Devon Mama

39 - That I don't need to try and force my toddler into 900 winter layers against her wishes to go outside! She can be naked like she wants for a change - Nomipalony

43 - Being able to spend time together as a family. The ability to play outside after school is a bonus too -  Slings and More Blog
