Summer Solstice

Summer storms roll in like trains, suddenly and in the blink-of-an-eye. These summer storms are my favorite part of this very, very hot season; the storms bring with them a nice cool breeze and beautiful rain.

Rain has always amazed me.

I’m pretty partial to things that force you to sit inside and curl up with a book and watch the lightning. I’m also pretty partial to songs that end in birthday cake…

But, back to summer. Summer is not my favorite season; in fact, just the opposite. I love the cold and I love the beauty of snow (I might not love it after months of it – but winter is still my favorite). However, summer still arrives each year, like clockwork, despite the weather in Ohio trying to make winter last for months and months…

This year, I celebrated the arrival of summer by purchasing a new car on the Summer Solstice. So, say hello to my first real adult purchase: a 2014 Ford Escape!

I am very happy with my baby, our first month has been great. She has seen me safely to and from work, a trip to Columbus and another trip to Youngstown to visit one of my best friends who was in town…

This car is a trooper. This car is also the most adult thing I have ever done.

So here’s to debt & adulthood!

…and also Summer!
