When I was young, my grandma would make open-face tomato sandwiches for me. A slice of bread, a little mayo, slices of tomato & cheese, broiled until the cheese melted... And just a smidge of salt & pepper. Those accompany almost all of my favorite summer memories.

I love having the family reunion in memory of my Dad. I rent cabins for my Dad's side of the family and we just celebrate family the entire weekend. All of the kids start asking about it...sometimes as early as January (reunion is in August). I'm not sure who gets more excited though..I add more games and activities every year.

I love the warmer weather, appreciate mother nature's bounty from the garden and markets, and really like not wearing several layers of clothes!

Jolien said...

Long days, some sun, a barbecue and fresh fruits, I'm a total summer fan. And yes, even when it gets really hot, the shade is perfect then. :)

The ONLY downer of summer I can think of, there's so much more to do than just sewing... ;) I tend to sew more in winter.

Jess Burns said...

What I love about summer: camping! And dresses. (Not at the same time)

Favorite style: A-line. Most of the clothes I've made have been some sort of a-line skirt or dress.

veronika said...

Summertime! How do I sum up what I love most about it? Sunshine? Lazy days at the beach? Roasting Marshmallows? Celebrating the 4th? Eating strawberries off the vines? Laying in a hammock or lounge chair reading a good book? Lemonade? Flip flops, dresses, and skirts? Mint green and gold color blends (which seem to be so popular this summer and I am completely in love with!)? Yes, I love all of these best and more! Yay for Summertime!
