    Every Summer, I look forward to inviting family and friends to gather on our front porch. Long talks and laughter fill our hearts as we slow down, relax, and reconnect. It’s fun to send everyone home with fresh picked bouquets from our old-fashioned, cottage garden. Summertime and front porches make such sweet memories! 💗

    I love lazy summer days with my family, especially watching my kids run through the sprinkler during the day and roasting marshmallows for smores with them at night.

    Ann Merry says:

    I am not sure this is a “tradition” but there is a recipe that my entire family really enjoys, so I do make it at least one time each summer. It is apricot brandy slush…a very refreshing and delicious drink. I suppose a more “traditional tradition” would be planting my garden each year, something I really look forward to.

    Hi! My favorite summer activity is to be with my best friend, because no matter where we are or what we’re doing, we laugh a lot, reminisc, and figure out new waysto help someone. We’ve always been that way since 1971, when, by happinstance, we ended up as
    roommates in college!

    Whether we’re on the phone online or in real time, I always come away with enthusiasm, affirmation, and inspiration!

  • 14
    Lori B says:

    Every June we head over to a u-pick strawberry farm to get strawberries. We always laugh that it’s a good thing they don’t weigh us , because there is nothing better then a fresh ripe strawberry straight off the plant. We call it quality control!

    My favorite summer tradition….hmmm. There are so many things I enjoy about summer….picking the fresh blueberries and raspberries from my garden for breakfast each morning…. Fires in our chiminea with marshmallows to roast and s’mores to create and of course crazy campfire songs to sing when the guitars come out…Walks on the beach near our home as the sun goes down and the waves serenade us with their songs…. Backyard pool parties at my parents home with the family and the never ending water games we play….Summer is just the best! Long fun and lazy days spent with all the people we love! What could be better?!

    Summer is pretty hot and humid here in the south, so probably making things for Christmas in july. I usually start making a few items at that time to get a head of all the things that go on in the fall that take my time away from crafting.

  • 40
    Sarah T. says:

    Night swimming – at least once in the season we ignore the risk to life and limb of the voracious mosquitoes and swim under the stars. It’s magical, even if the next few days we all smell of sarna!

  • 41
    Christine Miller says:

    My favorite summer tradition is huge family barbecue get-togethers!

    Going on vacation! We decided several years ago, that with only 10 years left before my eldest leaves for college, we would commit to taking a vacation each summer as a family. We’ve been alternating between foreign and domestic vacations, and it’s been such a special time to have together.

    Since my birthday is in July, it has become a tradition for my hubby and me to spend it up in Monterey, CA. This is my favorite get-away place! The weather is so pleasant (much cooler than where we live) and I absolutely love going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Sadly, this year…we won’t be going in July, but hopefully on the fall.

    Peggy says:

    Every year we go to Ennis, Montana fly fishing the Madison River. We have been going to Montana to fly fish the beautiful rivers for over 38 years with our boys. For the last 18 we have stayed outside of Ennis at the Rainbow Valley Lodge. We go around the 4th of July.
    It is a festive time with some of the same people coming every year from all over the United States and other countries. We have made lasting friendships. Now our grandkids come and are learning the art of flyfishing and have made friends with other ‘grandkids’! I have even gone to a card making party on a cattle ranch high up in the valley mountains. It was beautiful and fun being with crafters. It is not the only thing we do during the summer but it is surely a lasting favorite.

  • 94
    Karen Brandt says:

    Now that my children are grown, I look forward to summer to take photos of the Milky Way and wild flowers, and of course it is swimming season for our Golden Retriever– we take him daily to a local state park for a walk and a swim–best days ever!

      It’s a newer summer tradition, but we have been visiting a friend in Seattle for July 4th. Summer in Seattle is beautiful. We couldn’t go this year since the airfares were doubled/tripled due to the Boeing Max 8 flight cancellations, but hope to make it next year.

    Our wedding anniversary is in late August, and our tradition is to go away for the weekend someplace within an hour of where we live and stay at a Bed and Breakfast. Even though we’ve taken much bigger trips and had bigger adventures, this is still a favorite get-away with my favorite guy!

BUT, NOW THAT I AM LIVING IN AN ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITY, I HAVE ONLY A BALCONY FOR A FEW BEAUTIES. A FLOOR LOWER HAS A BLANK HILLSIDE SURROUNDED BY LIVE HOLLY TREES AND SMALL EVERGREENS. THE ONLY WAY TO ENTER THIS SPACE IS BY A CODE….THEREFORE IT HAS THE NAME “SECRET GARDEN”. SOME FRIENDS AND I NOW BUY SEED PACKS AND PERENNIALS TO GLORIFY A FORMERLY DRAB AREA. THIS YEAR SUNFLOWERS AND PETUNIAS, HISSUP AND CLEMATIS ARE IN CHARGE. RECENTLY AN ICE CREAM SOCIAL WAS OFFERS AS A YUMMY ACTIVITY. AND WHILE WE LICKED THE ICE CREAM, WE ADMIRED IN RAINBOW HUES.

    Catching (and releasing) fireflies is a great tradition I share with my grandsons and brings many happy memories from childhood.

    One of my favorite summer memories is going to the Library, checking out a stack of books and sitting under a Weeping Willow tree with my friends and lazing away a hot summer day reading. Given the opportunity today, I’d curl up on my porch with a cold beverage to do the same.

    My favorite summer tradition is just spending time with my kiddos, usually swimming. I’m a teacher and am off during the summers and I love being able to snuggle them all day long!
