  1. I love how Summer just seems to bring people together. Neighbors start to emerge from their houses to sit on their porches, and bringing them a glass of sweet tea doesn’t seem as odd as it did two months ago. Friends make day trips to the beach and lay under the vast starry sky as they swap stories and listen to the waves crash before them. Summer is simply magical.

  2. I love the longer days, but this summer specifically I love that I’m ending my summer by getting MARRIED–I’ll be wearing Kate Spade shoes!!!!

  3. i love swimming in the crisp, pristine lakes of New England in the summer, and peonies in June and fresh fruits + veggies and fresh mint from my garden for cocktails on the porch and family + friends get-togethers…the list goes on! love this print : )

  4. The sweet smell of honeysuckle in the air, especially at night when the air is a bit cooler. That’s what I love during summer and long for during the winter months. Best smell ever.

  5. I love summer for the simple fact that it is light out until 9 pm! (and outdoor happy hours!)

  6. The sweet smell of honeysuckle in the air, especially in the evening when the air is a bit cooler. I love it during summer evening drives with the windows down. And I long for the smell during the winter months. Best smell ever and the epitome of summer to me.

  7. i love the sense of freedom and leisure in the summer. even though i still have a lot of things to do, the longer daylight, blue skies, and relaxed atmosphere just make everything seem better.

  8. Not that you can’t grill all year long… But NOTHING beats a summer dinner made on the grill and eaten outside. And Flip-flops! Man i love flip-flops. Haha.

  9. although I eat it year round, something about summer + ice cream makes me happy. *fingers crossed*

  10. I love lazy days at the pool and toting all my pool necessities in a Kate Spade bag, of course!

  11. I love how summers in Chicago bring everyone outdoors for concerts and movies in the park, plus all those food festivals. Such a happy change from the long winters! Thank you for the giveaway – this is one of my favorite photos of yours!

  12. My favorite thing about summer? Probably being able to take a long nap under the shady trees, or swimming in a deep blue pool. (Ice cream is nice, too!) ๐Ÿ™‚
