My Favorite Thing About Summer Is. . . (plus a Giveaway for thinkThin®)

Summer is one of my absolute favorite times of the year. Yes — it may be hot, and we totally sweat WAY too much, but for me, summer offers so much more than major heat waves. It’s during these months that I get to spend growing closer to all the teenagers in my life — including my own.

Me and the kids

We spend our summer months hanging out at the pool, laughing and having a grand time. They are such a bright spot in my life. I could not have asked for better kids. Yes — they have had their issues, but they are awesome and I love spending time with them.

Another one of my favorite things about summer is spending special time with just me and my husband. He is the light of my life and I think I love him more every day that we are together.


thinkThin® Protein Bars

Having something good to eat — to snack on — is another one of my favorite things about summer as well. That is why thinkThin is my new favorite go to snack.


Protein helps fuel a full, energetic life. And good nutrition should always be delicious. That’s why thinkThin® Protein Bars are packed with protein, come in a variety of decadent flavors, and are gluten free.

I have been taking these yummy thinkThin® Protein Bars with me to the pool, and I always keep one in my purse to make sure that when hunger strikes, I am not tempted to go through the fast food drive thru.


These bars come in all kinds of flavors, so there is something for everyone to enjoy and love!

    My favorite summertime thing to do is to sit on my front porch each morning and drink my coffee. In the wintertime it is always too cold and I look forward so much to summertime so I can enjoy my porch.
