Summer is my favorite time of year, hands down.
- I love being able to throw on a dress & run out the door, I love basking in the sun, & nothing makes me happier than spending long afternoons outdoors sipping on a refreshing drink from a patio seat.
Everything about the season feels laid back & carefree, & there are so many fun times to be had when the weather is cooperating. The only part of Summer that I do not care for is the never ending humidity in the air. Every afternoon when you wake up & step outside it feels like stepping into a steamy shower. The air is so heavy with moisture that it’s strenuous to breathe, & each breath feels less effective than it should. Your clothes stick to your body & your hair goes limp with the dampening weight of the moist air! Once you begin dripping with sweat, you will never be able to stop, & the perspiration will simply stand on top of your skin, pooling with each additional bead of sweat. The only relief from the humidity is keeping your a/c running consistently, to extract some of the moisture from your indoor air & keep the temperature low enough to also lower the relative humidity inside. Any swing from a steady level of a/c, & you will immediately notice the air quality increasing as it becomes tepid & hard to breath again. If it wasn’t for the rampant levels of humidity, my love for all things Summer would be unstoppable.
