Sunshine purifies my soul. Admittedly, I'm not a morning person whatsoever. But I can appreciate the beauty of the sunrise. The way it symbolizes hope and a fresh start. I like sitting outside, reading a good book and basking in the sunlight like a cat.
It has rained in Virginia for the past month it feels like. And now the sun has come back in full force and I feel like a fog has lifted from my mind and spirit.
The beginning of summer always feels exciting, like the beginning of an adventure. My first instinct is always to stay home. Maintain the status quo. But the sunshine always beckons. It calls to me and whispers sweet nothings in my ear. I answer the siren song every time.
I have so many lovely memories associated with sunny days:
- Traipsing all over town with my dad when I was a kid. We walked everywhere, exploring, laughing.
- Falling in love with the boy who got under my skin.
- Lazy days at the beach.
- Getting married in paradise.
- Our first family vacation where both kids were old enough to enjoy it.
I'm excited to create more memories this summer with my loves. Now that hubs is off on weekends, we plan to do little mini trips as much as we can.
