THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE MIDWEST IN THE SUMMERTIME

I'm home in Indy for a long weekend and it's heavenly
  1. Thunderstorms
    Summer storms are so comforting to me. I feel this way about pre-tornado weather too.
  2. Humidity
    My hair hates it but I don't mind it so much here vs in NYC
  3. Walking into the freezing cold house
    Because there is such a thing as too much time in the thick heat
  4. Lake days
    We all grew up going to lake houses and water skiing all summer long. I miss this desperately living out east.
  5. Cocktails on my dad's screened in porch
    This is what I'm doing right now and I'm blissfully content
  6. Grilling out
    #everything
  7. Fireflies ✨✨✨✨✨
    My mom was from Indiana, and we used to spend weeks there each summer. Fireflies and thunderstorms on the St. Joseph River were my everything.

    A perfect evening soundtrack.
