There’s something so incredible about these hot, summer days.
Being able to feel the heat and the sun radiating off of the objects around you.
Or the way your skin feels in the morning when that first ray of sunshine lands across your arm and the warmth of the world engulfs your entire being.
How sweetly the smell of freshly cut grass and the sound of birds chirping come together to create a feeling that every day presents a new opportunity to shine as brightly as the sun does.
The idea that the summer time is a time for happiness and adventures and explorations all because the bright sky and the colorful land blend together into a painting unlike any other season.
Or the appreciation of knowing these days may be rough but that they’re the worst of the best, and even then, we still know we’d rather be breathing in these moments than trying to survive any other season from inside our homes.
Knowing we get to experience all four seasons, rather unwillingly, but making sure to soak in every sun-filled day is really something only those in the mid-west can truly appreciate, and it will always be something I cherish for the rest of my life.
