One of my happy places is at the pool or beach. There is something about being by the water, having the sunshine beaming down that is just so relaxing and enjoyable to me. I love any excuse to be by the pool. I think it is the whole process for me. I love to pick out my swimsuit and a cover up, pack my bag with my poolside favorites, grab a water (or fun beverage if its ‘that’ kind of day) and just sit and soak up the summer sun.
One thing that has been a bit of an adjustment after getting married is lay out time. My husband enjoys it for about 20 minutes and then it’s time for an activity…he gets really bored fast…swimming, some kind of pool game, walking around the pool, really anything that does not involve ‘laying out’ is what he prefers. It is like he has an automatic timer that goes off and once the time is up, it’s up. In May I went on a girls beach trip and I remember my mom asking ‘what did you girls do’ my response was ‘not a whole lot’. I wouldn’t trade anytime with my husband but I will say it was so fun on the girls trip to wake up early and sit by the pool all day long.
What can I say, if I could live in a swim suit by the pool I would (with lots of sun screen of course). Summer time is my favorite and I plan on soaking up as much time and pool days as I can! Are you as big of a fan of being by the pool as me?
