Hey! Hey! Hey! My favorite time of the year is here!
Hot, dry, blazing weather. Just the way I like it. Summer is so fabulous! Too fabulous for words and since I was a little girl, until now, I love experiencing, longer days, shorter nights, morning hikes, backyard barbecues, sunsets, sunrises, free concerts, ice cream, snow cones, frosted smoothies, homemade lemonade, maxi dresses, sandals, sunglasses, floppy hats, bronze skin, cornrows, big afros and box braids! What more could I ask for? Well, I could ask for a lot of things, but for now I am enjoying the hot weather while it last.
I haven’t really written any hair articles lately and that’s because I have been preoccupied with so many things. I can’t talk about everything right now but one day with my lawyer’s approval I will.
In the meantime, enjoy your summer and all that the warm nights bring!
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
“August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.”
―Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
“The castle grounds were gleaming in the sunlight as though freshly painted; the cloudless sky smiled at itself in the smoothly sparkling lake, the satin-green lawns rippled occasionally in a gentle breeze: June had arrived.”
―J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
“I have only to break into the tightness of a strawberry, and I see summer – its dust and lowering skies.”
―Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eye
