Fan of August

Call me crazy! I love August. Its my birth month. Its the month before school starts. It’s the month of filling with everything you want to without having to do it! I love August heat. I love August summer storms. It reminds me of lazy days at the beach when I was younger. Joyously frolicking on the beach, digging my toes in the sand, walking up to the local food shack for fried clams or an ice cream cone with jimmies (is that a massachusetts thing?)

Yeah, fall is coming with its cooler temperatures and changing leaves. That’s all very nice but it is not August. August is the best of the months, hands down, for me, for exactly what it is–hot, humid, sunny, lazy daze, short shorts, flip-flops, butterflies, bees, green grass. Anyway, here is my ode to August.
