What feelings are conjured just by hearing that world? Summer.
Last week my wife was in a bit of a funk. A few days later we were skiing a blue bird day at Heavenly Mountain. We took a break and were sitting in a couple of Adirondack chairs and were basking in the warm sun. As we talked she said she thought maybe part of her funk was just a plain old lack of sun. Ahhh… the Vitamin D from the sun. There’s nothing else like it.
Ski season isn’t over yet — I’m still praying for just one more powder day — but in my heart I am longing for summer. I’m longing for beach days. I’m longing for entire days outside with the kids with not a care in the world. I’m longing for summer days.
It’s that longing that had me looking through old photos of swimsuits and sandals.
Dear God, give me one more powder day on the slopes — and then 80 degrees at the beach.
Do you have a favorite summer spot?
Ready to go there?
While I do seriously look forward to more great time on the ski slopes as this season comes to a close, I can tell you that I really look forward to summer. The kids just aren’t yet at an age where they can get excited about powder days! But they DO get excited about beach days! In a few weeks we’ll be back in SoCal and when we return to Lake Tahoe we’ll be ready for full on summer! Join us on the journey. You can like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter or RSS.
