Sunny Days and Smiles

And I want a perfectly roasted marshmallow. The joys of summer. The smell of a campfire, the laughter of your friends. The warmer weather always brings out the more joyful side of me. Has to be from all the vitamin D that the sun gives. Or maybe it's simply just the warmth of it's glow on my skin because we go six months a year without feeling it.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I like the snow. For my birthday, Christmas, heck - even New Year's but after that I could care less if we have it. The month of December really is the only month I'm really concerned about having it - maybe January but the full month is pushing it. For the other 10 months give me the sun - doesn't have to be 85 degrees, I'd honestly settle for 65 or 70 for most of it.

I'm definitely looking forward to this summer. :) Not sure what's planned but I'm sure it will be something worthwhile and definitely fun. Oh - and my roasted marshmallow.

Random Fact: Americans buy 90 million pounds of marshmallows each year, about the same weight as 1,286 gray whales. Most are sold during the months of October and December.

MMM I still need to get my hubby to make a fire so I can roast a marshmallow...or make a fire and remind me that I want to roast a marshmallow. It's fun trying to roast the perfect one! :)
