What story are you writing this summer? You still have time to weave a good tale.
Is it a story of relaxing on the beach? The summer of travel? Perhaps your story is the summer of love or loss, of adventure or mystery. Maybe you are writing the first chapter of a new story, or you’re tying up the last chapter of an old, worn and tired tale.
The good thing about a summer story, is it keeps moving and changing. Day by sunny day, there’s always something more to write, a new page to turn, a new character to introduce or a new scene to explore.
I’m blessed with having the perfect natural beauty of the Gulf Coast beaches, and the laid back friendliness of the local people, which merge together to create the backdrop for my summer stories.
So, if you were to write your summer story (so far), what would it be? And more importantly, how will you let it end?

It has definitely been a summer of travel for our family, but you are so right… The beach fixes everything.
as our boys grow up we’ve been able to travel farther and be more active together. the memories we’re making now I know will carry on in their hearts long after we’re gone and they’ll tell their kids about our summers together, traveling back to my hometown to visit cousins and grandparents where I tell them of my memories of where I come from. that was the first part of summer and now we’re making memories at home with trips around their hometown to the museum, zoo, etc. I love the way you put it…every summer has a story. i’ll remember that mantra every time I think of all my to do list that’s not getting done until they return to school. summer is an investment in memories, theirs and mine. I know i’ll miss this in a short decade time span but at least we’re making memories, great ones at that. hoping it ends with everybody saying we did all we could do and had fun while doing it.
And I like what you said, “summer is an investment.” Even though it’s blazing, sticky hot outside, I still love summer best because of the freedom to do . . . whatever.
Thanks so much for your comment and for reading!
These summer days go by so fast and then we wonder where the years went. Great idea to focus on ” this is the summer we…..” and and lock in those memories.
YOU know I LOVE my summer!!! And I love the beaches of our Gulf Coast. I am still out West and will catch up upon my return later this week:)
Beautiful images. Wish I could be on the beach right now. So lovely.
Aren’t we lucky in Alabama, summer is our longest season! Love your thoughts and images~
I was born in St. Petersburg, FL and have that gorgeous white sand of Gulf Coast beaches in my blood! Nothing compares to the beautiful beaches and the warm, serene water. Well, except during a hurricane, but that’s another story! So glad to have met you through Preppy Empty Nester!
It’s a story of opening a new restaurant.
That’s a story of amazingly hard work! Good luck and hope there’s a happy ending!
Summer for us has been all about happy vacations 🙂 I hope to record them in a blogpost sometime soon!
That’s the magic of blogs . . . an instant record of our lives!
The story of family, vacations, and remodeling our kitchen. Busy and so very blessed!
