One more reason that summer is my favorite season of all the seasons that ever seasoned:
I’m not sure there’s anything more relaxingly enjoyable than reading a good book (Vanity Fair) in the great outdoors while sipping a delicious homemade iced coffee.
Summer, don’t ever leave me.
If sunny skies and warm weather and darling dresses weren’t reasons enough, here’s one more reason (or maybe a couple dozen reasons) I love summer:
SIGH. I am SO BAD at this blogging thing these days. I have only my usual excuse to offer – I was busy! First my entire [immediate] family visited for three days full of sun, food, and Settlers of Catan, and then one of my close friends from college visited for a weekend of failed farmers’ market trips, classy beverages, and more Arrested Development than you can shake a stick at, and now my cousin is in town for a conference. And, hey, it’s summer! I want to bask in the sun and work on my sexy flip-flop tan, not sit indoors, hunched over my laptop writing blog posts. Basically, I don’t know how all you regular bloggers do it. Mad props, yo.
Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and say that, yes, I’m alive, and yes, I PROMISE I’ll write more soon (because I KNOW y’all are just unable to function without my always-thrilling posts). In the meantime, if you ever see Gerbs Pumpkin Seeds in your local grocery, snatch those babies up and get your pumpkin on. They’re made by a Rhode Island-based company (Ocean State represent!), and they’re a perfect afternoon snack. Mis padres brought me a bag of the Roasted Red Pepper Pumpkin Kernels, and even though I overdosed on them to the point of stomach acheyness yesterday, I still think they’re mightily delicious. Pumpkin seeds have never been so sophisticated!
And that’s all I have for ya. No wait, here’s a photo of some adorable kittehs… I stole this photo (via Facebook) from my sister. Aren’t they just too cute for words?
