Things I Love This Summer

I have a lot of blogs that I check in on. I check on the ones listed to the right of my blog when they are updated, but I have a very long list of blogs in a favorites folder that I check on every other week or so. There are so many wonderful blogs out there! Hula Seventy is one of the ones I check on occasionally. I came across a posting on her blog with a list. I love lists. I make lists all the time. I can’t seem to help myself. I can’t seem to stop making lists. Then I noticed that at the end of her posting it said something about “52 lists”. Fifty two lists! Wow! The thought just made me happy. I had to start reading what she had so far. When I got to her list of 100 things that she loves, I realized that I needed to stop and make a list myself. Here are 100 things I love this Summer:
