Barbeques, ice cream, festivals, beaches, Christmas trees, warm nights, campfires, the smell of freshly cut grass, adventures, Christmas, the new year and new beginnings is what reminds me of summer in Australia.
Unlike countries such as America, England and Canada, we celebrate Christmas wearing singlets and shorts rather than festive Christmas sweaters and slippers. And this does not bother me – although, I can’t deny the delightfulness of Christmas sweaters, let’s be honest. They are the best things about Christmas. Nevertheless, I quite like Christmas in Australia because of it being summer.
I don’t know about you, but in summer my mood shifts. I feel a lot more optimistic throughout the warmer months rather than the colder ones. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love winter, but there’s something about summer that reminds me of opportunities and new beginnings.
Last week my family, Kevin and I spontaneously went to the beach. Although it was a little colder that day and the wind was existent, I wouldn’t have had it any other way. The company made the day worth it.
And let’s take a moment and appreciate the adorableness between Kevin and Alex (my nephew) in these photos!
I am so ready for summer in December, and the new year in January!
p.s. I made a new Instagram, so if you could go ahead and have a slight peak, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you - @jes.cohen
