Lady Grey's Top Ten Ways to Embrace the Summer


1. Make a daisy crown

2. Jump in a lake... or pool, or pond, or anything you got now.

3. Make homemade iced tea or support a local lemonade stand

4.  Walk barefoot in the grass

5. Put the hairdryer down and let your hair dry au naturel in the summer breeze

6. Go on a picnic with some friends

7. Pick a wild flower bouquet

8. Go camping, or just sleep outside under the stars one night in your own back yard

9. Make salad suppers and try out new greens like mache, watercress, lambsquaters and dandelion

10. Throw down a blanket and gaze at the passing clouds, and then have a nice long summer's nap!

It's hard to pick only 10 ways to embrace the summer...
honourable mentions to: painting your toenails a funky colour, highlighting you hair naturally by soaking it in lemon juice and letting it dry in the sun, playing in the sprinkler, or having a water fight...
Oh I could go on & on!
Do you have any summertime rituals?

Ahh, Glorious Summer!(exclamation to infinity)

My fave thing to do is simple: Every morning I go outside with my cup of coffee and take a yard walk in barefeet. I go from garden to garden and deadhead and pull a weed here and there. I pinch the lavender and thyme....GAH. Heavenly scents. I ♥ summer sooo much.

I'm so glad that summer is here. Finally! I'm in Texas and summer isn't official until you have your first shaved ice! Yum.

I love every item of your list! Mmmm, homemade iced tea - it's been so long...

For me, summer is not complete until I've watched some dazzling fireworks!
