Getting my toes pretty and wearing my sandals everywhere I can..Don’t you love these retro Salt-water sandals? I don’t know about you, but growing up in 1970’s California this is all we wore. Colors were either red, navy, white or brown. No toe protection for flying feet and yes many a toe were skinned.
Biking as many places as I can around town. Getting misted by a nearby sprinkler adds bonus points! Already biked to lunch with the sons to our town’s hot dog and malt shop. 🙂
Many bike trips to the library and lots of lazy afternoons reading with a glass of ice tea on the patio.
Repeat this daily! Let this be your Summer mantra.
I will consume as much mint, basil, figs and watermelon as humanly possible.
Pup tents under the stars…Or in the garage a few hours later…”Mom, we heard noises.”
I hope to get to two of my favorite Northern California spots- Pinecrest Lake and Lake Tahoe. I love being with the mountains, the smell of the pine trees and time with my whole family.
Still looking for my dream hat that covers enough, looks stylish and doesn’t look like Darth Vader…(You know what I’m talking about? Some scary sun visors out there!)
Poolside with a hat and book. A little shade would be nice. My husband laughs because my optimal temperature is 79 and I would prefer it to stay that as much as possible. Thank you so much.
I’d love to have a retro pool party!
Let’s have guys in white shoes and mint jackets, girls with big hair loud prints…That Tequila song playing in the background. This is so my childhood. Anyone still got a cool swim cap? 😀
Okay sorry off track here..,but the umbrellas really were cute weren’t they? (Slim Aarons’ photos)
I need to watch some of my favorite chick flicks again like, “It’s Complicated.”
And I’ll be thrilled if any of my men here at home will watch the original, “A Room With A View,” with me. I am still enchanted by this movie after 25 years with it’s fantastic characters, and views of Italy and England. Based on the E.M. Forester novel it’s a great Summer read as well.
