It’s funny. In Palm Springs, it’s pretty much summer year-round, but even here there’s been a subtle but perceptible shift since Memorial Day that summer has arrived. And it’s not just that we’ve finally reached triple digits. There’s a feeling in the air, in the light, in the smell…
And it makes me so excited for my favorite season.
When everything and everyone relaxes. When the focus is on enjoying the day and not being tied to your desk. When you stop to smell the roses, or the oleander as the case may be.
School’s out for the summer.
Both figuratively and literally. Businesses have shortened summer hours, even shutting down for months at a time.
And in the summer, who can be bothered with fussy dressing? I live in and live for easy dresses you can just toss on and go. Add sandals, sunnies and a giant hat and you’re set.
Are you excited for summer too?
