This is my favorite time of year. Partly because Arizona summers are in my blood. I love them.

I love that they chase away all of the snowbirds.
I love that it's a dry heat. (I miss Arizona.)
I love summer because it means wearing tank tops and fun dresses and flip flops.
I love summer because things like watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, and sweet corn are in season.
I love summer because I like saying "summer solstice".
I love summer because it brings fond memories of swimming in Grandma and Grandpa O's pool and eating frozen grapes and frozen strawberries sprinkled with sugar.
I love swimming (but I hate the way sunscreen feels on my skin.)
