 British summer officially begins in 12 days, I know you are as excited as I am for all the fun it brings. The days are getting warmer, athough I cant really enjoy it because its constantly raining. When I woke up this morning and saw the sun shining, I got ready as quickly as I could to get some pictures taken. June is here!!
The kids will be out of school in about a month. I think in American schools are already on summer holidays. You are planning your family holidays (if you haven't done so already). Last week we took out our garden furniture and the BBQ grill is ready for the sunny afternoons.

I've come up with 5 things I have been looking forward to this summer, just some little things that makes the heart smile.

Walking on the grass barefoot
I can never get away with this in winter. The smell of freshly cut grass which tickled under your feet. Apparently walking barefoot on grass do have some health benefits. Some of which are:
  • Help combats headaches
  • Strengthens the immune system(resilience)
  • Helps relieve stress
I wasn't aware of this until I decided to do a quick research. I just simply love the feel of my toes in the warm grass.

I think this is one of, if not the most common activity that people look forward to in summer. Roast corn; Chicken; burgers; ribs; fish; kebabs. Grilling ideas are absolutely endless. BBQs are a perfect way of getting family and friends together that you haven't seen in months. Oh and how could I forget the rum punch and beer. I sometimes believe that a barbeque is the British way of celebrating the summer lol. As soon as the sun comes out, so does the BBQ!

Summer Fashion
It is so easy to dress in summer. Just pull on a simple dress and some sandals, add accessories and you are good to go. No scarves, no boots and absolutely no coats! I'm all about effortless  and comfy outfits this summer. I'm partial to dresses all day, but rainy evenings call for denim and trainers and so far it's been mostly rain. So I am definitely looking forward to brighter skies in the next couple weeks.

Summer time you get the best fruits. Strawberries especially are a delight in summer. It's a good idea to go strawberry picking as well. Great family activity and very rewarding. Summer brings with it various fruits, bestowing our taste buds with some of the most refreshing flavors of the year.

family Days Out/Activities
In summer you get the chance to visit places that are usually closed in winter. 
Simple things like hanging out in the backyard, jumping in the trampoline, blowing up the family pool, Attending fun fairs. This is the time when  he circus is in town as well etc. etc. etc. 
I could go on and on. I bet you guys have loads of activities planned for the summer, especially now that the kids are out of school. Hope you guys enjoy..

Only because a little bit of summer is what the whole year is all about...
