Five Things Thursday: Favorite Summer Sayings

As much as I dread the intense humidity that inevitably accompanies Washington D.C. summers, I’m also quick to admit that there’s just something magical about this time of year. After all, summertime means 4th of July, warm evenings on the deck, fun travels to visit family and friends and, of course, flip-flops on my feet day in and day out.


So, to help capture a little bit of summer's intangible magic here on the blog, I’m devoting this week’s Five Things linkup to a few seasonally-inspired sayings.

  1. Love the first saying! It's been Summer here for a while, but I love being able to lay by the pool on hot afternoons. Very relaxing!

    1. I love the first saying, too! And I still need to get myself to the pool this year. I've been busy since it opened, but I'm hoping to get there soon!

  4. I love the 3rd one!

    I love eating outdoors, grilling, going to the beach, hanging by the pool, the long days ... the only thing I don't like is when it hits 90 degrees, lol.

    1. LOL! I don't like when it gets that hot, either, mostly because the humidity makes it unbearable. It was like that for part of this week, but it seems to be cooling down now. Have a great weekend, Faith!

  9. I'm loving DC in the summer too. On Monday, I went to the Mall and just walked around the monuments and people watched. I love how the city comes alive during the summer and there is just so much to do. It really is one of my favorite things.
