Sweet Summertime


Hi honeybees! Sorry for the crickets over on this little blog. Seems I've taken sickly the past few days. An annoying cough has turned chronic, my voice has gone on vacation, and the constant jolt from all of this hacking has left me with a migraine. Always lovely yes? I had to leave work early last night and I've spent the past 3 days sipping on Robitussin DM and Ibuprofen. I'm sure it'll pass soon though! Memorial Day weekend is generally the start of all of the summer shindigs and weekends spent at the river, so I'm celebrating by rounding up a few images that have me pumped for the heatwave coming our way! I'm also going to leave you with a very favorite song of mine (video included!). "In This Diary" by The Ataris is probably my soundtrack to the summer every year! Nothing gets me in the mood for road trips, windows down, with friends like that song...




I want to stop being sick so I can enjoy all of this sunshine in the pool with a lemonade and loud music! 

What are your favorite songs for summer? 
How are you planning on spending your summer months?!

  2. Waah! I WISH we had a heatwave. It's nearly June and we're still only averaging about 55° here. Normally it's about 70° by now!

  3. Your pics brought a smile to my face considering how GROSS it is outside here.

    I get to be off in the summer (hurrah!) so I spend my time gardening, reading, crocheting, and generally having fun.

  6. YES YES YES. I am SO ready for the hot summer heat, the fireflies, making my own preserves from the fruit growing in my yard.

    Classic rock is my go-to music for the summer - Boston, Elton John, Hendrix, The Who.. Time to make a playlist!

    It's a shame you're sick! Feel better soon!

  9. Oh, sweet tea and watermelon are two of my favorite parts of summer! I need to get a sun tea jug.

    I had a cough that lingered for 2 weeks a little while ago, and I have to say the worst part is the headache from all the coughing. I hope you feel better soon.

  12. I love cooking up a smorgasbord of food from the garden and inviting people over to eat it with me. And I love the beach! The Dandy Warhols, Frank Zappa, and bellydance music always make me think of summer.

  19. this made me realize i really miss mixtape monday!

    there aren't many things i love more than summer and all the warm weather fun that it entails! it is finally warm in western pa, and i can't wait to be done typing this to put on a sundress (without tights!!) and wander around flea markets with my husband.

    i've always been a summertime punk girl. the loved ones screams summer to me! the ataris are perfect sunny weather music too, though!

    have a wonderful day, kaelah!

  24. Haha, that song makes me think of my best friend, who passed away in January. We had a great time in high school making fun of the Ataris' lyrics and enjoying their songs anyway. A good memory from happy-go-lucky times. :)

    I'm new to your blog via AlreadyPretty, by the way. It's great that you've kept at this as long as you have, it inspires me to continue plugging away at the book blog I'm a member of.

  25. You're absolutely right about The Ataris summertime gem. I was 15 when So Long Astoria was released and so now whenever I listen to it all I get is this massive adolescent type nostalgia. They have come to Australia a couple of times over the years and I've gone to each show. Safe to say Mr. Kris Roe is getting on in life! But when you close your eyes, he still has that Blue Skies, Broken Hearts voice. Good times.

    It's just turned Winter here, so I am incredibly jealous about all these summery photos you've posted! I can only hope you start to feel better so you can venture out and enjoy it! x
