It's more than just a season; it's a lifestyle, the mascot of freedom and token of adventure. It's a lifestyle of late nights under an impossibly vast star-studded universe, stretching to catch the sweet sticky drops falling fast from a melting ice cream cone, and spontaneity just for the heck of it. There has always been a certain aura summer possesses, one that sets it apart from the others. It's one of feet meeting sand and golden droplets of sun meeting cool sparking water; airplanes and suitcases and new places; bronzed arms laced with freckles, sun bleached locks, and the taste of adventure mingling with saltwater on your tongue. It embodies so much and try as the other seasons might, there isn't one quite like summer. The curtains to these blissful months have just opened and I'm ready.
