Welcome to Summer!

(Picture: Our favorite summer vacation spot, Cancun 06')
Today is a big day for me. The first day of my summer. I have been in the pool all day today and I just finished making my summer music play list. Tonight we are grilling, drinking limeade, and heck, I should probably make an apple pie to be completely good and American about it. And good news, I can still get in the pool the old school way...just get in. I worry about the day I wake up to find that I get in the pool like my mom, one toe at a time, that means the arrival of old ladyhood.

Yay! Welcome to summer!

So here's my summer music playlist (OK, well the first of many). Note and disclaimer: These are songs that make me happy or make me feel like I am at the beach and make me want to dance or sing at the top of my lungs. Most of them are old, so if you are looking for new music choices, this is not the list for you! (Although I do love this new guy Justin Nozuka from Canada, he is 16 years old and I think he is the collision of Matt Kearney and Gavin DeGraw, brilliant). Here's to summer. Enjoy.
