as a photographer that LOVES to take portraits, my favorite thing about summertime is the light late in the day. as the sun slides down, it creates a thrilling, heavenly effect as it washes my dogs or my friends or my family in a perfect glow of orange.

As a Floridian, the beach is my absolute favorite part of summer - when it's not raining. I live further inland at the moment and was able to make a coastal trip this past weekend. Lovely!

Cass said...

Oh, I'm already such a fan of silhouette blue! yay for this giveaway!

Favorite thing about summer .... the early sun and feeling so inspired and happy to get up early and get going on the day! So much more can happen when you're all up and dressed at 7:30 rather than 9:30 on weekends!!!

Karen said...

I love the anticipation of summer, just the pure joy of waiting for a cool evening stroll, hardly having enough patience to wait for the homemade ice-cream to freeze (but it is definitely worth it), and the longing for the vacation at the end of August.

SuzeandSil said...

just one thing!

Hmm...

My favorite thing about summer is that second just before the freezing cold waves hit your legs - when you're whole body is so perfectly hot, but so excited about the impending cold...its that perfect second of bliss

Can't wait to be at the beach this weekend!

Kimberly said...

Champagnewednesdays said...

Pink lemondade. Definitely. And flip flops.

P.S. said...

Heather said...

My favorite thing about summertime is the evenings. Beautiful sunsets, fresh mountain air, going for ice cream, fireworks, the sound of crickets. Just the peacefulness that falls all around us when the sun sets.

natalie said...

Summer favorites? Spitting watermelon seeds in the yard, chasing fireflies in the humid evenings, sitting with dirty feet and popsicles on the back porch, sprinkler hopping, swimming floaties on tiny swimmers. There are so many!

Summer said...

Hands down, my favorite summer thing is blackberries. When I was little, I would pick them on my grandmother's farm, and now I have found a place behind my college's practice fields where they grow by the bushelful. They always remind me of that Shel Silverstein poem 'The Garden' :)

Judith said...

My favourite thing about summertime are the days rowing on a lake with all my friends....

Leesh said...

i love the eager anticipation of relaxing evenings with a glass of vino, summer reads (of the fiction sort)and driving with the windows down.

Jess said...

Pick me, pick me! My favorite thing about summertime is making smores with the neighbors in the middle of the night, or soft serve ice cream cones. Yum!

Amanda said...

My favorite thing about summertime is going to Lake Powell with my family and spending long days in the sun and water.

chole1989 said...

my favorite thing about summertime... ok now, you gotta visualize this with me so close your eyes.

it's night time and you're out on walk. it's warm but there's a slight breeze in the air. suddenly, you catch a whiff of someone doing they're laundry and you smell the most glorious smell, downy dryer sheets.

i'm a nerd, but i love it when that happens and it seems to only happen in the summertime! :)

Bonnie said...

Very cute stationary! I'd love some. My favorite things about summer are many, but I love going to the pool and reading library books on the chaise lounge. And strawberries!

leah charbonneau said...

Oh my goodness! I need these! They are so beautiful!

I think if I don't win, I might just have to purchase them - they're *that* cute!

Hope your pregnancy is going well!

JJB said...

No matter how old I get, the onset of a southern summer transforms me back into the mindset an 18 year old...I daydream of running to the river, swinging on a rope swing, lying in the dewy grass, and kissing my boyfriend (now husband) until the stars come out.
Pick me! I love it!

darbie said...

I love being with friends and family outside and eating ice cream cones while they drip.
