Ten things to love about August

I am a list person. Recently a dear friend went through a difficult time, in part inspired by Rock Star Diaries emailed her a list of ten things about (current month) to love." Lately it has turned into a habit, at the beginning of every month we come up with ten things to love about the month. I thought I'd share our most recent:

Ten Things to love about August

1. Hot August days that make summer feel like it will never end

2. Cool breezes reminding you that September is around the corner

3. The back to school section at Target

4. Harvest! Sweet corn and squash are all their best in August

5. Picnics in the evening when sunlight hangs like cobwebs in the heat

6. Summer sales making way for new fall clothes at Anthro

7. A summer love

8. Sweaty iced beers in bottles

9. The smell of sharpened pencils

10. Grilled cheeses with tomatoes

What do you love most about August?

great list - august is one of my favorite months. i love juicy heirloom tomatoes... the golden wildflowers that bloom in my parents yard... the pale sunlight in late august evenings... and last chances to spend as much time outdoors as possible.
