summer simplicity.

I absolutely love summer.
Fresh fruit. Farmers markets. Longer days.
Long lakefront runs. Sitting in the sun. Warm rains.
Flower pots. Barbecues. Bonfires. S'mores.
Outdoor concerts. The 4th of July. Lemonade stands.
Reading in the park. Flip flops. Coconut-scented everything. 

But my most favorite thing about the season?
The sense of ease--the natural simplicity--that blankets each day.

my marathon is in July and I have been doing long trail runs ... so lakefront runs sound enticing. Sending you a hug and thank you for always inspiring! xo
