It seems like Winter wants to linger a little while longer here in the south. While it isn’t as cold as it is in the northern parts of the United States, this Southern Belle is tired of it! We are ready for sun-kissed cheeks, boat rides, feeling our toes in the sand, and it being light outside until 9 p.m.
The sound of bullfrogs in the pond and whippoorwills in the distance excite me! I’ll take that any day instead of the sound of horns blowing in a crowded city.
We want longer days with 80 to 90 degree weather perfect for shorts, sandals, and riding around in our convertible with the top down. Bonfires at night with friends and family laughing and sharing stories, singing Karaoke, ahhhh, let the good times roll.
This week we enjoyed temperatures in the 70s and 80s, but this weekend the 60s returned. We are thankful we aren’t shoveling snow or slipping on ice, but island breezes, tropical drinks on the white sandy shores with the bluest water licking the shores are what we long for!
