Dreams Come True in Summer.

We all love Summer right?
The sun (apart from England of course), everybody's happy (except from when it's raining..see afore point), and nice summery clothes are tempting us in the shops!

I guess still being at uni, I still get summer holidays, they're not the 6 weeks that we all grew up with, but instead are scarily long! So my post today is all about summer :)
I love Summer, I have amazing memories of summer when I was younger. 
Back then my dad had a different job working for our church (who valued family and spending time with them, therefore let him go home at a decent time to come home to us :)) and my mum stayed at home to look after me and my brother, which meant we spent a lot of time playing in our garden, playing cards, making dens and forts.
I have a distinct memory of summer, when my dad came home from work every day, and we'd go outside and play football, or chase bubbles. Being happy, the thing we're supposed to do :)

Obviously things change, and we're still happy. 
My brothers doing a year long course away which means he wont be home until September, my dad's at a different job who work him to the bone, and my mums working too. But we're still a close family as we ever were :)

So this Summer, I'm gonna make it one to remember.
I haven't got money, so I'm going to improvise...bring it on.

What I'm looking forward to this Summer:
  • Weddings <3
I love weddings, who doesnt?
I've got two this summer, one this Saturday (I'll remember to do an OOTD!) and one in August.
It's such a privelige to see people get married; it's their one special day to dedicate their lives to being joined together...and we get to see it. How cute!
I go to an astonishingly large amount of weddings, when I was little I went to about 5 a year! I've got a massive extended family, and a big church, that's a lot of weddings! :)
The one on Saturday is for people that I don't know too well, but the Bride means a lot to me- she one of my Sunday school teachers when I was little, and I have the fondest memories of her being so understanding...she was definitely my favourite!
The August wedding is two of my good friends from church, they've been together for about 6 years and being able to grow up with their relationship blossoming was a pleasure to watch...will definitely be an emotional one!

  • Holiday!
    I cannot wait, I'm so excited :)
    Me and my mum have literally not talked about anything else.
    I'm so fortunate to be able to go with my parents, it's going to be so lovely!

    Google Images
    (yep, that's actually where I'm going...I can't believe it!)
  • My Birthday!
    I'm turning 19 this summer! I love that my birthday is in the summer, means I never have to do anything haha, bad thing that everyone usually forgets as it's in the middle of August! But that's okay, I remind the people that matter haha ;)
    The holiday is actually my present, as I said I didn't want anything else but to be able to chill out and get my dad away from work and his phone- so I'm a very lucky girlie.


  • Festivals!
    This year, I'm actually working at one festival, and then going to another straight after.
    I'm working in a cafe, which will be interesting being clumsy haha, but it'll be so much fun! I'm working with one of my friends, and then a whole loads of my friends are coming for the festival that follows.
    Mud, wellies, friends..what more could you want?

  • Adventures!
    Time to get creative :)

    What are you looking forward to this summer?

    Oh! And if you'd like to guest blog for me whilst I'm away, please email me :)

    Love, Elizabeth xx

  3. Ahhh summer is definitely in full swing and like you, I am feeling all sorts of nostalgic. Nothing feels better than waking with the sun, sipping slowly on my coffee, and listening to the birds. Fabulous.

    Hope you're doing Lovely,
    That Girl in Pearls

  4. Make sure you cherish these long holidays. You'll never get them again!

    I'm looking forward to my boys being off school, no school runs and day trips to Cadbury World and other fab child orientated places!

    I've got 3 weeks off work, one of which will be spent in Spain.

    I'm looking forward to all my decorating being completed too. Hopefully with that pretty chair in my room.

  22. Loved it hahahaha!!

  23. A wonderful post. I really enjoyed reading it.
    I never worked in a cafe...unless the Ice Cream and Soda Fountain Joan and I worked at, counts.hehe It makes me happy you love your parents and can enjoy being with them. Parents are sad so many kids don't see it that way.
    Have a great summer and vacation.
    Love, Joan and Joann

  24. Looks like your summer is all planned out :) I am so jelly, I haven't even start planning yet

  25. I'm so jealous your birthday is in the summer! Mines in the winter and I was always at school for it, they'd sing happy birthday in class, so embarrassing! The only thing I have planned this summer is going to Leeds Festival I can't wait, it'll be my first one!
    Hope you have a fab time.
