Southern Summers

I have a love for everything that represents the south and everything that deals with summer. What I love even more are the little things that put me in a southern summer state of mind! Growing up I can remember countless nights spent outside watching the lightning bugs and trying to catch them as it was beginning to get dark outside. We also put them in a mason jar with holes punched out on the top. I think Mom would let them go when I went to bed but it was always a good time. When the lightning bugs appear I know summer is here, despite the official start of summer date. Even now I love sitting on the porch and watching them light up! Other than lightning bugs I always look forward to summer for the BLT's! If you know me personally you know I LOVE tomato's! I could eat them all day, everyday! Tomatoes on any type of sandwich, plain with a little salt or added to pizza and pasta. But the best way to eat them is in between two slices of bread with a little salt, a little mayo, bacon and lettuce. Yum! Now I'm starting to think that if I had a BLT sandwich I could eat while sitting on the front porch in a rocking chair watching the fireflies I would be in Heaven. haha, oh Southern Summers are the best! I'm so glad we still have the next two months to enjoy!


  1. Love this post! Wouldn't it be nice to go back to those time when we were little and the only problems we had were how many fireflies into a jar before bed.

  2. This post puts me in such a happy mood--I totally agree about it all!
