Summer: A 1000 Gifts Post

Standard

Today is the FIRST DAY OF SUMMER!  Yay!

I’ve been logging my 1000 gifts regularly in my journal, but haven’t always posted them here.  Partly due to time.  Partly due to private things that I don’t want to discuss publicly.  So I sort of have two lists going right now.  One public, and one more private just for me.

And I’ve been less diligent about doing blog posts on the “public” ones, sort of relying more on tweets and Facebook posts, etc., for those.

BUT

Since today is THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER!!!!

I thought it would be appropriate to list all the things I love about summer.  🙂
