We had a party in July and I talked my husband into stringing Christmas lights up in the backyard. I loved them so much we’ve never taken them down although I’m sure our neighbors wish we would. I feel like we’ll use them a lot as the weather cools off and we start using the fire pit again. At least that’s my goal right now while it’s still blazin’ hot and fall sounds so magical. But once it finally comes, I chicken out from the late-night bonfires and just stay in bed under layers of blankets watching movies.
All of the sudden we’ve become the neighbors with Christmas lights up year round so that’s cool. Adult life is so different than what I imagined. Instead of staying up late or taking spur-of-the-moment road trips like I thought I would when I became an adult and got to do whatever I wanted, I just put up Christmas lights in July and leave them.
Being an adult is so overrated.
