    Oluwa -
    LOVE the Avatar!! I love the first day of summer because that is the day my husband asked me to marry him (12 years ago). I was working a double at a restaurant, and he walked in on my break with a big bunch of flowers. I said"What are these for?" He said, "For the 1st day of summer - you love summer!....and...we are leaving right now for the Cape (Cape Cod, MA). I laughed and looked at my boss. He said "Have a good time!!" (hubby had planned ahead). I said "What about clothes?" "I have everything in the car - lets go" We got to the hotel, and he said "You need to shower and be ready by 5PM. We have somewhere to be." When I came out of the shower, he had a bunch of beautiful outfits hung up for me to choose from. We got dressed up and at 5PM, we boarded the Cape Cod Railroad (REALLY exclusive - need reservations months in advance). When the train reached the Sagamore Bridge as the sun was setting, he pulled out a diamond and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him!!! The whole train full of passengers stood and gave us a round of applause. I yelled "YES!!"
    Oh gosh.....sorry, but I LOVE that story!! We were married a year and a week later. I didnt want to get married on the same day as my engagement because it was so special on its own!!
    Happy First Day of Summer Everyone.....
    Love Lauri
    PS - He still loves surprising me with things like that - I am blessed beyond words with a hubby like him.....

    what a beautiful way to always welcome the first day of summer. Your husband sounds like a romantic, they are few, far and in between. You are, indeed, blessed.

    Peace and Blessings

    Yes....a true romantic....And a wonderful Daddy as well. We have gone through a lifetime of ups and downs already (as Im sure many of you have as well)... Whether it be my illness, my subsequent problems with medication, not being able to work, serious financial issues....But he has never faulted in his love and commitment to this family.
    I do thank God every single day for putting him in my life....and keeping him there, despite his temptation, Im sure, to run like the wind!! lol...

    I just had to laugh when I read the title of this post, as it's 50 degrees, and raining here! Actually, I love the cool weather, and the rain always puts a fresh smell in the air. It will be muggy and hot soon enough. Happy Summer!

    I have to add my THANKS as well, Batch. Happy Summer back to you!!

    Summer weather has finally arrived for us in Oregon.....it's 85 degrees here today and beautiful. We've had cold and rain and grey for such a long time now that this is a great way to welcome summer.

    Lauri....I love your incredibly romantic story. Thanks for sharing your special memory. True LOVE is a blessing for sure!

    Here's to a Happy, Healthy, and Safe Summer to everyone! 8)

    Fondly,

    Lori
