Oooh I’m so excited that summer is right around the corner! I’m dreaming of warm sunny days, and shopping for them too. As I mentioned in this post, a cotton shirtdress is a perfect choice for rising temps. I love how this print can be work appropriate with nude pumps, perfect for a summer weekend with Birkenstocks or sandals, or can be festive with statement shoes. It was a no brainer to pair it with my favorite color – orange!
In the very town center where these pictures were taken, I will be at the season’s first community festival this Sunday. It’s Mother’s Day and our annual tradition is for my mom, Emerson, and I to head to my sister’s for a fabulous brunch, then Karl joins us and we all walk down to this town center for music, art, and spending time with friends and neighbors. I always see this festival as the kickoff of the summer season, for right around the corner is Memorial Day, weekends at the pool and trips to the beach. This summer the Garys plan on living life to the fullest and we have a lot of adventures on the schedule. Summer is the time of year to seize the day and live in the moment and we’re planning on doing just that. Stay tuned as I’ll be sharing plenty of them on the blog.
Sparkling Ice reached out and asked if I’d share the ways I plan to live life to its fullest this summer as they are empowering us to, “DO MORE. LIVE MORE. AND EXPERIENCE MORE” this season. Their sparkling waters, teas, and lemonades add splashes of color and intensity to every day. I’ve enjoyed Sparkling Ice before this partnership, but thanks to it I have tried many more of their 20 different flavors and have some new favorites. The drink is bursting with real fruit flavor without all of the calories, has just the right amount of fizz and will be so refreshing this summer as my family and I are making memories. I can envision pulling a cold bottle out of the fridge after a day in the sun, using it as a mixer for cocktails on a girl’s weekend to the beach, or making tasty Fruity Sparkling Ice-Icles from the recipe on the Flavor Up website.
I know it feels as though it was just winter, and for some people it may still be chilly where you live. But summer is around the corner and it’s time to think about how you plan to enjoy the season. Let me know in the comments how you plan to live life to its fullest and Flavor Up your summer!
