So Ready

I'm ready for the warm feeling you get when the sun shines on your skin, the smell of freshly mowed grass and how it feels against your bare feet, and the sound of people interacting outside. I'm ready for picnics and cartwheels and swimming. I'm ready to cruise around town with my windows down and my music up and my hair blowing in the breeze.

I'm ready for flowers and sprinklers and foot freedom. I'm ready for a good sandwich followed by sweet lemonade. I'm ready for green leafs and lady bugs and bumble bees. You can keep the wasps though, I'm pretty sure no one likes them.

I'm ready for road trips and adventures to nowhere. I'm ready to have sunshine until 9 o'clock at night. I'm ready for T-shirt and shorts weather. I'm ready for flip flops and day dreams and cloud watching. I'm ready for lakes and rivers and camping and fishing and playing pretend.

I'm ready for barbecue and vanilla ice cream. I'm ready for summer, but I'll take spring if and when it actually decides to show up. I'm so bored of the wind and rain. I don't know how much longer I can take it.

I'm ready for this.


  1. Me too, except none of my summer clothes fit me anymore :/

  2. I'm so ready for summer too! Bring on the ice cream, heat, and late summer nights with bonfires =D

  3. Cass: i have to buy new shorts because the ones last year are too big for me! on the bright side, it means you get to pick out some cute new things for this summer :)

    Natalie: I totally forgot about bonfires! oh my goodness and campfire smoke is simply delicious. i can't wait for summer!
