I have collected some of my favorite summer photos I've taken over the last three years to share with you. My favourite things about summer include.. feeling the sun rays on your skin, the magnificent sunsets and sun rises, the happiness shared by everyone and everything, the feeling when you brave the water and the chills you get when first jumping in, road trips, cool breezes, hot nights spent in the living room in front of the air-conditioning, the big angry clouds that form in the evening before a tropical storm, sitting on the deck watching the lighting and feeling the rain against your newly tanned skin. I could go on for a long time because i truly love summertime!
Although I am proud of these photos and I also wanted to let you know why I haven't posted in a while (summer days are limited), I mostly wanted to share my inner most condolences to the families affected in all of the tragedies that have played out in the past week or so. The families of the victims killed in the Newtown school shooting, the many people affected in the typhoon that hit the Philippines earlier this month, and all who were affected by Cyclone Evan in Samoa and now in Fiji. I am deeply saddened by all of the loss around the world at the moment and my thoughts and prayers are with them all!
