26 Reasons to Fall in Love with Summer

With the temperature higher than usual in the UK, many of us are feeling the heat.  It might not be your favourite of the 4 seasons, but there are plenty of reasons to enjoy the summer. 

Whilst we will not shy away from a winter hibernation, blankets and woolly jumpers, there are plenty of reasons why we enjoy the warmer months, too.  Here’s why we find it easy to fall in love with summer:

  • Light evenings that you can enjoy after a day at work … maybe with a cheeky cool drink or two
  • Taking the laptop outside and working alfresco
  • Wearing less layers of clothes and being able to leave the coats at home
  • Feeling warm air on your skin
  • Eating outdoors – alone or with others
  • Light mornings where you can have some quite time alone before you start the day
  • The smell of suntan lotion
  • Walking the dog in daylight hours
  • Picnics
  • Not travelling to and from work in the dark
  • Relaxing our routines and slowing down
  • Ice-cream
  • Picking strawberries
  • Drying the washing outside
  • Flip flops
  • Paddling pools
  • Water fights
  • Impromptu BBQs using anything from the fridge
  • The smell of wet grass after shower of rain
  • A summer thunderstorm
  • Blue skies
  • Trips to the beach and swimming in the sea
  • Driving with the windows down
  • Festivals, fayres and fetes
  • Exercising outdoors
  • Walking barefoot on grass

What do you love about summer?  Or maybe you prefer a different season?  Pop a note in the comments – we’d love to hear from you.
