After reading Nicole’s blog post from Girl in a Boy House about what things make her summer “Summertastic” I wanted to take on her challenge to document some of my favorite summer things.
Here they are!

While I also love a good Margarita or mojito, my everyday drink is brewed iced tea. I found this fantastic pitcher earlier this summer made by Bodum and had to get it. What makes this one different is that the pitcher is made of glass allowing me to put boiling hot water into the pitcher, let it cool to room temperature, then put it in the fridge. Hot water in plastic makes me nervous and I don’t think you get a good brewed tea with cold water. I have lots of favorite loose teas from David’s Tea. But in the summer, my favorite iced ones are: Tropicalia, Citron Oolong, and Lime Gelato. If you haven’t tried their teas, find a store, or order some online. They are some of the best teas I have ever had. *I am in no way sponsored by David’s Tea. But I sure wish I was!*
If you feel passionate about summer list your favorite summer things on your blog and let me know.
Share the summer love.

I also love brewed Iced Tea and Sunglasses! The food looks delish!
Thanks Sarah Lynn. There are so many fun things about summer. I could have just kept going and going, perhaps there will be an August version too!
Fabulous list! Nothing like the beach to keep the kids busy – all you need is a bucket and shovel! Awesome!
Thanks Nicole! Your post was such a great inspiration.
