As promised, my answer: Summer to me = day trips. You know it's summer when you and your family plan trips to fun, unique places and spend lazy days driving around, walking around wild west towns, attending Renaissance fairs, etc!

Good luck everyone!

Chris said...

Hmm...summer to me..Snow Cones :) I love em!

Jessica's Bookshelf said...

Summer for me is all about hiking and camping!

Thanks for the giveaway! I LOVED The Ghost and The Goth, and I can't wait to read this one! :)

Cialina at Muggle-Born.net said...

Eeep! I've been wanting to read this one. Thankyou SO much.

To me summer means that I can just read all day and not worry about anything else. Too bad my summer has been too busy to do just that. :(

Amanda said...

Summer can only mean one thing for a teen. NO SCHOOL! Now I fill my days with vacations and the beach :)

BLHmistress said...

Summer to me is lying on the beach with a cold drink one hand and a good book in the other.

To me summer means we are that much closer to winter. I love snow.

WulfLuva said...

I loved the Ghost and the Goth!

Summer to me means being able to rest my poor, overused brain from that evil thing called homework. :)

Lunarwolves86 said...

Thank you so much for this giveaway!!

The one thing that means summer to me is hearing the Cicadas in the warm summer night. :)

Pearl said...

Summer means family to me. as it is the most time i get to see my family members.

The Happy Booker said...

Just one thing? I'm not that decisive! Summer for me is hurricane season, flip flops, spaghetti straps, and my hubby looking hot in his apron showing of his grillin skills!

Summer to me is getting up early on weekends, sitting on my deck with a cup of tea and watch the show mother nature puts on for me, hummingbirds swooping around, squirrels in yard, butterflies floating in my rose garden and the occasional deer and rabbit out back.

Judy said...

This year: HOT- having to take the grandchildren to the sno ball stand just about every day:)

Summer to me: well as a child it meant Summer Reading Program at my local library, musical theater, and swimming. as a teen it meant summer gymnastics workouts at school, spending time at my aunts & uncles, spending 1 or 2 weeks at 1 or 2 different summer camps, and hanging out with my best friend. as a young adult summer meant working, usually at a summer day camp teaching gymnastics, coaching those same summer gymnastics workouts i use to attend as a teen, and taking my younger sister to the libraries for summer reading programs. the meaning of summer has changed as i've grown up.

Anne said...

Hot weather means summer to me, and boy, we got it this year!

Alison said...

BBQ's mean summer to me. Also county fairs and swimming pools :)

Summer to me would be the Sun of course!! and lots of it! ... I like the rain and all, but you can't really do much in it. and snow is fun too but it can get freezing, fall is great but I don't enjoy being bundled up too much or the fact I'm usually sick during that time of year, so Sun. Yes, the lovely endless 2months straight of sun lol
Thank you for participating in the Summer Giveaway Hop, and thanks for hosting this giveaway!!
Have a great week + summer fun!!

Summer to me means hot, humid weather -- not my favorite season. On the upside, it means relaxing in the cool AC with a tall glass of iced lemonade and a good book/movie.
