Things You’ll Miss When Summer Ends

In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re in the throes of summer. The temperature, hemlines and number of mosquitoes whispering sweet nothings into my ears at night are on the rise. Oh and if you also weren’t aware, and pay very little attention to your iCalendar, summer’s almost over. That’s tough beans for us Northerners who waited for what seemed like 3 years to feel the sun on our faces and practice our right to bare arms in sleeveless shift dresses again when Polar Vortex happened. Knowing that summer’s end is imminent has my frown right-side up! Sun-kissed moments are fleeting and I, as well as you, won’t take them for granted. Here’s a list of things that will be missed once that apple-crisp Autumn air sends a shiver up your backside.

  1. Driving with the windows down & hair fox-trotting in the wind
  2. Al fresco dining…or drinking…or drinking while dining al fresco
  3. Shirtless joggers…or dudes who believe it’s too hot to wear their shirts
  4. Wandering aimlessly around your ‘hood just because it’s a nice day to be outside
  5. Simply saying the words, “Holy sh*t, it’s a nice day to be outside”
  6. Wearing less because feeling cool means more
  7. SHORTS (see above)
