” Cause a little bit of summer makes a lot of history…”

– John Mayer

Ahhhh.. it’s June already?! Say it isn’t so…I don’t know about you but it never ceases to amaze me how fast time flashes by each year.

On the bright side, summer is just around the corner and it seems that nearly everyone I encounter couldn’t be more excited about it!

Truth be told, having lived about the first decade of my life in a tropical country where sunshine and warm weather are a year-round thing, I admit that I had taken summer for granted in the past.

Though I ended up spending most of my life in countries of four seasons, it wasn’t until college did I cultivate a much-deserved appreciation of this amazing season.

It was then I come to love spending hours on end at the beach basically doing nothing but absorb the sheer amazingness that nature has to offer.

Whether it’s the warm rays of the sun, the sound of the crashing waves, or the wonderful feeling of my toes covered in the sand…I simply ADORE it all.

One certainly doesn’t need to be spending at the beach to bask in the glorious summer. Wherever we choose to spend it, summer never fails to bring the best in us.

As it continues to effortlessly brighten up my days with plenty of smiles, happiness, and joy each year, it’s certainly about time that I express my gratitude and love for this oh so vibrant season.

On that note, I hope this collection of words of wisdom related to summertime will also inspire you to make this summer your best one yet!
