all summery

via instagram byalisoncooper: more here

it's been quiet here.
final grades have been posted
and i've been under the weather
which means i've spent the last few days
drinking tea & watching netflix
and other decompressing-type things.

it feels like summer in my part of the world, 
all hot and humid
like it's always on the edge of a thunderstorm
that never actually happens.
it makes me want to drink a lot of frozen lemonade,
watch greer garson movies late at night,
read books from my childhood,
and put iron & wine on the record player,
only getting up to flip sides
over and over and over.

what makes you feel all summery?

  1. That fifth shot is absolutely stunning. Was it taken from the roof of your apartment? I've been under the weather myself, but no rest here. The (parenting) show must go on...
    It's getting very cold over here in Sydney so I'm forgetting what summer was like! But fruit smoothies always make me feel summery. As does the smell of sunscreen...

  2. That sounds beautiful! Feeling properly warm sunlight on my face, icecream and big bunches of sunflowers make me feel summery! Alas I have yet to experience any of those so far this year, but soon I hope!

  3. Warm dry California mornings really make me think of summer, which we've been having this week (highs in the 90s! Ick!). Love how summery your views have been lately. :)

  4. So jealous of your warmer weather, sounds lovely! Hope you feel better soon :)

  5. These pictures made me feel all summery. And it's raining outside, so... Amazing!
