Good Life

via Pinterest

I always get in this crazy, giddy mood the first week of summer where I just wanna drive really fast with the windows down and my music cranked way up. Preferably with some sort of slushy, fruity concoction from Sonic in the cup holder.

Stephen and I were out on the boat last weekend, laughing obnoxiously while the wind smacked us in the face and ice cold lake water splashed us as we hit the wakes...I was giggling, shrieking  like a kid when someone tosses them up in the air...and there was a moment when the sun was shining oh-so-very-bright and I was warm and happy....and I remember thinking to myself, "This is how life is meant to be lived."

Laughing uncontrollably at nothing, getting soaked, getting a titch sunburned and just plain devouring the moment.

Sometimes life's moments can best be described in song. Ergo, one of my favorite summer songs, aptly titled "Good Life" by OneRepublic.


P.S.- I'm extending the SwimSpot giveaway another week, due to the commenting issues that some of us have been experiencing lately on Blogger blogs. I want to give everyone a fair shot and plenty of time to get an entry in. I've been told that if you comment using FireFox instead of IE, it works! Or, if you need to leave an Anonymous comment, just be sure to include your name (first name only is just fine) and link to your blog (if you have one) with your entries- that works too!!

P.P.S.- I'm in Chi-town for work Monday and Tuesday, but I'll be posting 2 YUMMY Black Bean Salsa recipes from a couple sweet blogger friends this weekend to tide you over 'til I get back. 

Be blessed, lovelies-
