I am honored to present to you the South African summer of 2011. She is beautiful this year, isn't she, ladies and gentlemen?

I'm so glad it's warming up! I love waking up to the early-morning heat and planning my days that seem to be extended by the sunshine. It makes the world a happier place and it's the first time all year that I've been able to feel my toes! Summer is my favorite season, the season for swimming, water fights, sun-streaked hair and a few other things. Here's a few of my summer faves:
The incessant sunshine.
Sunshine spills itself everywhere, and it's the kind that I really don't mind cleaning up.
I have a few more chances to put together the perfect playlist that will forever remind me of Summer 2011. Beach Boys, Mumford & Sons, Owl City, and Jon Foreman? Don't mind if I do...
Summer reading lists
More sunshine equals more reading time, right?
