in summer, the song sings itself - william carlos williams

ah yes, summer has officially arrived - and today is the longest day of the year, so this post is short and sweet so we can get back outside and enjoy these last few hours of sunlight before the days start getting shorter again. 

oh how we will miss the 9 pm dusk. 

when we think of summer, we think of these miniature vintage repro postcards we had from a trip to hawaii in high school. though we've been known to save everything, these didn't make it, but we did find a few online that were similar if not identical. 

summer means that everything slows down just a little; the heat gets stuck beneath the trees; you sweat outside at midnight; you jump in a pool by moonlight; great music; all around fun. 

what do you think of when you think about summer? what are your summer plans?
