Smells of Summer

I wrote about the sounds of summer a bit ago and thought I’d move on to my favorite smells that only visit in the warmer months:

  • The smell of rain on hot cement
  • The blooming linden trees that line the street outside my office
  • Goodies cooking on the grill (especially a charcoal grill)
  • Coconut-scented sunscreen
  • The way skin smells when it’s hot from the sun
  • Camp fires

What are your favorite summer smells?

    Between this and hating to walk on crunchy snow…I’m not positive.

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
