Here, Here (See Jane Toast)

Yesterday was officially the first day of summer.  I don't know about you, but it had already been summer in my mind as soon as the temperatures hovered around 80 degrees.   Sometimes I get anticipatory thoughts and think that July means that summer is basically over...not this year.  The summer solstice has made me think optimistically and realize that we have many more months of sandals, sundresses, and SPF 45.

Cheers to summer!

*my nephews Jack and William when they came to visit me in Chicago last week

Remember when you were a kid and all you wanted to do was eat ice cream after a long day of swimming with your friends?

What was your favorite summer activity growing up?


  1. beach, popsicles, pool for me as a kid

  2. How ADORABLE are they!?! Ice cream, soap operas, hanging with my friends at the mall, and swimming. I miss summer vacations.

    Happy Summer Dear!

  4. I love that picture!
    Swimming in friend's pools def represented summer to me! It still does sometimes!
    Have a great day


  5. What an adorable picture! I remember those days well. I always wanted to swim or go on our slip n slide and eat otter pops. Happy second day of summer!


  6. Okay Anna Jane??? I always feel like July is the end of summer too! What's up with that? I long for summer and then when it gets here i pout around b/c it's almost over. Working on stopping that.

    Anyway - fave summer activity growing up would have been camping! we had great camping trips with the fam as kids. my dad insisted on "roughing it" in a camper in the middle of a bush somewhere. it was awesome. great lake fishing and the whole nine. sure do miss those days.

  7. Swimming and then eating b/c I was always starving... or else showing sheep. It was way more fun than it sounds!

  8. So cute! I loved riding my bike and hanging out at the pool!


  9. def the beach and eating ice cream yummy and fun

  10. I LOVE this post -- so cute. I loved the pool more than anything else but went there for the first time in years today and have no idea why. What a zoo!
