Beginning Over Again with the Summer

“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.” 

– Nick Carraway, The Great Gatsby 

It’s the start of the Memorial Day weekend here in the US and a bank holiday weekend in England, the unofficial start of summer.  It doesn’t really feel like summer though with all the weird weather. Let’s just look at these images and pretend shall we?  
Bon weekend!

    These images are perfect! Love every one of them. Makes me want to lay by a pool with pitcher of iced tea and a stack of magazines.
