today I am linking up with Lin and Natalie for Random Thursday! Thank you lovelies for this awesome link-up! I am really excited about this and I can't wait for all the topics to come!
Today's topic is:
First I have to admit that my favorite season is probably fall but every season is packed with good stuff. I can't handle the heat very well, I often get dizzy so I need to drink a LOT. I mean water, not beer. So here are my top three things about summer.
... my birthday
My birthday is in July so most times I am able to have an outdoor party which includes grilling (we say "Schwenken" in Saarland), friends and family, music and lots of alcohol. I love to be able to spend the whole night and day in our garden celebrating my birthday.
When I was a kid my parents always threw a huge outdoor party for me and invited all my friends. It was fantastic and I have so many great memories.
So yeah, having my birthday in July is definitely a plus!
... going on trips with David
It is only our second summer together but I enjoy every second of it! Schatz, thank you for creating so many great memories!
Last summer we went on a road trip to Colorado and Utah. It was unforgettable! We also attended to our first wedding together, went on a backpacking trip, to concerts, went to Cedar Point amusement park, grilled out a lot and had so much fun.
We had such a wonderful time in Colorado and Utah! The landscape was breathtaking! That's me on an arch by the way. We had to get rid of all the other people to take this cool picture.
That's how you look when you come back to your car after a 25 miles backpacking trip and not taking a shower for 3 days. Nice.
... grilling out and drinking beer outdoors
I love to sit in the garden and grill together, having a beer or two. It is so relaxing and so much fun. We always have grill lots of different stuff because our taste is so different but I am glad that David likes my grilled mushrooms and peppers. And yeah, grilling and alcohol belong together. At least for Germans.
You can't really see it in that picture but our grill is a Fussball. David bought it as a surprise for me when I first came to America. You rock!
I hope you guys are all having a wonderful summer! Join the fun and link up here!
