All Summer Long

"Sittin' in my car outside your house, 'member when you spilled coke all over your blouse? T-shirts, cut-offs, and a pair of thongs: we've been having fun all summer long. All summer long you've been with me, I can't see enough of you. All summer long we've both been free, won't be long til summer time is through, not for us now. Miniature golf and Hondas in the hills, when we rode the horse we got some thrills. Every now and then we hear our song, we've been having fun all summer long."

Determined to make this summer the best one yet. And very excited for the upcoming film Love & Mercy about the life of Beach Boys musician and songwriter Brian Wilson. For as long as I can remember their music has been playing in my car, or my parents', at the beach, in every cheesy summer rom-com flick... and when Uncle Jesse sings "Forever" on Full House reruns my heart just about skips a beat every time. 

There's always those connotations we associate with the arrival of a new summer--the extended daylight hours, the warmer breezes, windows rolled down. Ice cream tastes better, time moves slower. We go to baseball games and get the first sunburns of the season. And of course there's the laid-back-cali-surfer-lifestyle and simplistic 1960's charm of those crooning boys carrying boards in matching button-down plaid. 

What do you look forward to when you think of summer?
