The Aroma of Summer

Posted on: June 2, 2013

Our first week of summer has seen daily trips to the pool that leave the smell of sunscreen and chlorine lingering in the air.

I love summer.

But, I haven’t always. Texas summers are hot, leaving you sticky and oppressed by the heat. Yet, lately I’ve grown to love it. This aroma that is summer.
