I don’t know if it’s because it reminds me of my childhood and that “school’s out!” feeling, or if it’s something deeper, but summer feels different in so many ways. There is just something about the spirit of this season – even for those of us who have long been out of school – that makes it special. It’s like everyone let’s out a collective sigh and just relaxes a little bit more.
Is it summer where you are yet? It’s definitely arrived here! We went from our gloomy May and June mornings to it being almost 90 degrees today! And believe me, I’m not complaining. I’ve been wanting some sunshine and warmth for months now, so it feels delicious. (Though when you speak to me in August, I might not be feeling quite as happy about it, haha!) 😉
It’s hard to believe we’re already half way through May!! How did that happen?! I feel like I was just talking about winter decorating, and now we’re well into spring and about to talk summer! (Not that I’m complaining mind you – we’ve had such a rainy winter and quite a gloomy spring so I’m very ready for some sun!)
Hi and happy Wednesday! Today I’m excited to be joining a fun summer home tour hosted by Krista of The Happy Housie. If you’re coming here from my friend Jamie’s, welcome! She has such fabulous French vintage style!
As I shared in my living room tour a couple of weeks ago, summer has a special place in my heart. That feeling of less responsibility, long hours of daylight, and lazy afternoons takes me back to my childhood and simpler times. And Krista’s Seasonal Simplicity Summer tour is a celebration of just that, which I love!
Today I’m excited to share my French Country summer home tour with you! In fact, I’m just excited about summer in general. I know when August comes and it’s blazing hot, I may regret wishing for it, but I can’t help myself.
