July is my favourite month. It is far enough into the summer that you’ve really gotten into the swing of it actually (finally!) being summer. It’s also still quite distant from the pleasant yet melancholic August afternoons that somehow both move gently along and careen past you.
Although I deeply adore Thanksgiving, golden and sweet smelling autumn afternoons, crisp and sparkling white blankets of winter snow, the joyful burst of flowers heralding May’s arrival, and so many other beautiful seasonal experiences, I think that I could happy live year-round in the bountiful, contented, and hopeful month that is July.
Farewell July, Oh Beautiful Month!
