Summer… It’s amazing how just one word can make so many of us so very happy. Unfortunately we haven’t seen too much of summer 2014 here so far, but I guess there’s still hope, because today it was actually warm enough to have dinner outside in the sun. Guess I don’t have to say that I enjoyed it a lot!
How do you spend the summers if you can choose? In the city, visiting a new restaurant with a new cozy terrace every night? In your own home, doing some gardening when you have some time to spare? Or maybe in a totally different country, where the summers are even warmer and sunnier?
I personally love to take off to the countryside for a few days, where I can just be myself, listen to the birds, read some good books, plant some new flowers or harvest some vegetables. I love being able to enjoy the breakfast in the garden, in the shadow of an apple tree.
I also love being able to let my laundry dry in the garden, so that the scent of fresh, clean clothes can spread all over the place. I love enjoying a coffee on the porch, reading an interior magazine, and I love to leave all modern equipment behind, if only for a few hours or a day. That is vacation to me!
