Summer Solstice 2011

Well, I couldn't very well let my favorite day of the year pass without recognizing it. Especially since this is what the forecast was for the day:

And this is what we got:

And this is how I felt about it:


Let me just say, it was a summer miracle! Today would mark the second day in 2011 that the temperature exceeded 80-degrees. That was not a typo people, I did write "second"!

Now I find myself in a conundrum: Am I excited that the summer is here? Hopefully implying that warmer weather will accompany it? Or am I sad because the days will now be getting shorter? Perhaps if I lived somewhere that experienced summer temps pre-4th-of-July, I might not find myself awake at night analyzing the situation.

And for the record, my beloved swim park opened on Saturday (only to close early "due to inclement weather" - people, it has be BAD here! La Nina is out to make my life miserable!)! I've been scratching at the door for so long Wyatt finally had to take the leash off and let me run loose. Despite the fact that he has finals to study for this week, he took the trip to the park with me...twice! Happy day!

Wyatt + Brittany = Love

Wyatt + Brittany + Swim Park = True Love

I celebrated here myself by washing the outdoor furniture, something I didn't do last year and therefore never wanted to go outside because it wasn't inviting. I'm going to plant my containers with flowers tomorrow (some have already died while they have been waiting and hot sun got to them and shriveled their tiny pots of dirt). And then, I am going to go out in the heat of the afternoon to the cooler back yard and read. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Enjoy YOUR season!

Love, Momma

The fact that you are coming to the reunion makes me very happy. I know that my kids will love you. How could they not? I will talk you up just in case so that they are extra excited to see you. This will be fun.

Thank goodness we're finally getting some summer this week! I've been taking the jogging stroller out every morning and I still feel like I'm trapped indoors with the beautiful weather calling me outside! Let's hope this lasts.
