Summer is the official best. No shoes, biking everywhere, hippie-style headbands, driving with the windows down, poolside afternoons, warm pavement, tanned skin. Abbie, Luke, and I have been celebrating sunny days with lots of chalk, a hose, and some cement. What we like to call sidewalk painting. My favorite part about sidewalk chalk? Draw all over the driveway and then rinse it right off and start again.
