a few of my favorite things...

it is 90 degrees here in virginia today. 90 degrees!!! it feels like summer and i love it. i can just smell summer coming...yum!

i love summer...not just because i still get the benefit of having a summer break, but because i love the feel of summer. carefree, lazy days by the pool; living on a diet of popsicles and iced tea; throwing on a t-shirt and shorts, or even better, a breezy cotton dress; barbecues any night of the week; trips to the outer banks...mmmmm...can't you just taste it?

thinking about summer makes me think of some of my other current and all-time favorite things that put a smile on my face:
-pretzel m&ms
-the new colbie caillat album
-walks in the sun that end up with piper collapsing on the floor as soon as we get in:

-flip flops!
-bouts of belly-aching laughter over silly things that wouldn't be funny without the people you're laughing with
-iced green tea from panera
-hugs from my students
-real (non-bill, non-catalogue, non-circular, non-junk) mail
-rita's strawberry gelatis
-getting lost in a good book (need a good read? check out the help by kathryn stockett -- SO good! you can thank me later.)

-wandering the aisles of target
-psychic moments with my sister
-date nights with the hubs

and of course, my little choi boy! he will be 9 months old soon and i can't wait to hold him and smell him and cover him with hugs and kisses :)

and just because i love you all so much, i will leave you with a never before posted picture of our little guy. he is a little over 6 months old in this picture and we just loved his crazy hair and pink socks :)

sigh...i just love him.
