Summer. My favorite season: light, bright clothing, sandals, self-tanner (no more “real” tanning for me!), iced tea with mint, that delicious smell of blueberry pie baking in the oven, and more time to just slow down.
Then . . . every four years we have the excitement of the Summer Olympic Games, which makes this season even more special! This year, we’ve witnessed Michael Phelps reach an unprecedented 23 total Gold Medals, the two “Simones” bringing home the gold, Katie Ledecky made surpassing her own world record seem like a walk in the park (or swim in the kiddie pool), and holy moly Usain Bolt!
