There is this feeling I get every time the last days of May roll around. It’s the unofficial start to summer and no matter how old I am, it’s exhilarating. Produce is more abundant (I live in a climate with a shorter growing season), people are relaxed and it feels like there is a potential for a party and/or street festival at any moment. Maybe it’s related to the abundance of vitamin D, or the positive association with a summer vacation as a child, that makes this 3 month time period a golden moment. I like to create my own drama by freaking out that summer will soon be over, and run around frenzied, proposing picnics, extra long walks and 6am wake ups to listen to the morning doves that nest in the courtyard next door. Fun. All and all, though we love each season here at Sweetcicle’s, there is something seriously special about summer. We never underestimate how nice it is to not put on a coat. Here is to a great summer.
