if you’re reading this via a feed reader or bloglovin’ you won’t see that i’ve changed the look of my website. i’m using the oleander theme developed by Solo Pine, purchased via Creative Market. Because the design relies heavily featured images, things might look a little funny around here for a bit… it’ll take me a while to go back through my archives and add the images in as i’ve never needed them before. I’m currently working on a temporary solution that will at least make it look a little better whilst I backfill!

  • Great list Leonie and good reminders to enjoy life and not let it pass you by. Sandy feet must be good as it is in there twice ;)

    • Haha, good spotting. It wasn’t meant to be there twice, so I’ve changed one of them to another summer favourite :)

  • What a lovely list. We are approaching those magical months here in Tokyo where it’s comfortable to sleep with no heating or air-conditioning. There’s a lot I like about the warmer months; eating outdoors, going barefoot, being able to wear the same clothes indoors and out. Perhaps most of all, I love late afternoon walks. Of course, we can walk all year round. But, there’s something about watching the last rays of a sunny summer day trace out our steps that feels unique to the time of year.

    • Oh yes, walks in the late afternoon of summer do have something special about them don’t they?
