Can't wait for...

via one of my pinterest boards
A Whole Lotta Nothing...
I can't wait for it.

I am anticipating the hours and minutes until the time comes for
lazy summer afternoons
sandcastles at the beach
driving with the windows down
the warmth of the sun 
the dip in the pool
the fireworks 
the air-conditioned living room as we play Monopoly
summer blockbusters to beat the heat
stacks of book I "want" to read
doing nothing

I can't wait to take in what I took for granted before the jumble of life happened.
Before I leapt into 
nightly college courses
all-nighters to cram for an exam
homework..and more homework
saying, "tomorrow...I promise."

This summer I will be glad.
I won't (or will try really hard not to) 
complain about the sweltering heat
say that, "I'm bored"
worry about things that don't need worrying about

I'm going to enjoy.
And let out that huge breath I've been holding in all year.

I. Can. Not. WAIT!!

What are you looking forward to?


  1. You are so close to your summer break! Hang in there, it's just around the corner!!!

    I keep telling you this: That hammock looks divine. I hope you get to spend some time in one this summer!

  2. Oh my gosh I can't wait either! Summer school is over the last week of June, so the month of July will be my summer. I'm looking forward to the exact same things as you!

  3. Haha! Let's just say I can't wait for you to read my tomorrow's post! I'm such a fail! I'm coming to your house for the Summer!

  4. Ooooh - does that come without mosquitos? Or ticks in Pidg's case. Summer isn't my favorite but you make it so appealing.

  5. Mmm...can't wait for my man to come back from Italy....or for sunny days by the pool sleeping...or for lilacs blooming and fireflies. :)
