Last summer, I got to go to Rome.

I wasn't a big lover of Summer. I love sweaters, rainy Seattle, & Pumpkin Spice Lattes. In other words, I love Fall.

But after living in England for a cozy, gloomy year I was sort of ready for some heat.

Then I landed in baking hot Rome. In the middle of August. When even the locals shut down their shops & retire to the coast for the end of the summer.

But instead of being miserable & running for the air conditioning... I loved it. I basked. I soaked up the sunshine.

I thought it was temporary, the result of an overdose of English rain.  But it turns out I have actually learned to love Summer.

It's a good thing to learn. I didn't know what I was missing.

    1. You, my California friend, have always known the genius that is summer. I'm now glad to join you on the sunny side.

  2. I absolutely loveeee the summer. I don't have much of a choice being from Texas! Anytime the temperature drops below 60 I get all kinds of grumpy! :P
