Band of Bloggers: Vol. 7 / July 2016

Summer 2016 is officially here for all of us in the Northern Hemisphere! Longer days, abundant sunshine, warm weather and fun activities will hopefully keep us busy and happy during the months ahead.

This month the Band Of Bloggers will be sharing their favorite summer memory or tradition as well as the one scent or blend that we most associate with summertime.
When it comes to summer, the quintessential scent for me is watermelon anything and watermelon everything. I just can't get enough of it! It's sweet, fresh, fruity, bursting with wonderful whiffs of summertime. My favorite summer memory is the summer before my friends and I all went off to college. We'd wake up early, stay up late, eat crappy tacos from Jack in the Box, listen to Blue Oyster Cult and jam out, scream at people from the car window (hey, at least we weren't destructive!), smoking the hookah in our buddy's backyard, going to the beach all day every day, walking at the park and cracking jokes....just being young! Those were the good ol' days.

  1. Watermelon! A scent I always forget I love.

    Your summer memory is so nostalgic! I love that brilliantly shining time of life when one is on the cusp between adolescence and adulthood. So much reckless fun. It sounds like you had a fabulous last summer. I had to go to summer classes at the university in order to get accepted so I didn't have that last carefree time with my high school friends, but it worked out for the best I suppose. I ended up breaking up with my high school sweetheart and spread my wings a little. Love your answer!!

  2. I also forgot about watermelon! Yes, watermelon IS summer!


  3. Ah watermelon, I can already the juices dribbling down my chin (or is that sweat, lol!) That last summer before college, so much feels! :)

  4. I can't say I had a love for watermelon until recent years, so I missed out on a lot of the watermelon based memories most of my friends and family have. The smell of watermelon definitely takes me back to summertimes growing up, where Mom would buy a watermelon while grocery shopping in the morning and it wouldn't make it until dinnertime.

    Your memories sound awesome! It took me a while to spread my wings so I didn't get that rush of freedom and growth until well after college had already started.
