Seasonally boundless..

via Country Living

Summer is bliss isn't it!?! And today you will find me guest posting about it over at my dear friend Monika's blog - Splendid Willow, whilst she is off enjoying some fabulous family time in Oregon.

I love that I am sitting here at the end of Winter in Sydney, waiting for Spring to arrive (not long now!!), writing about Summer, whilst preparing to return to Autumn in Sweden in just a couple of weeks.. How seasonally fantastic life can be!! :)

I think it's time for me to move to the southern hemisphere soon - especially when I see these photos - I love summer! I bet Sweden in autumn is very pretty - I've been to Stockholm before (in spring) and I thought it was one of the most beautiful cities, ever!

How is it that you make every single season sound appealing...? You almost (almost) had me. I am done with summer for now, though. I am ready for fall and winter both. :)

I like your take on the change of seasons! As you saw, I'm not a big fan of fall since it brings in cold weather...but I do like getting cozy on the couch with a blanket and good book! But I adore spring...the colors and the fresh's bliss!
