The warm weather your predecessor brought has ignited something inside me and I feel like I can take on the world. Looking back at Dear July last year I was reminded of the torrential rain falling this time twelve months ago, and I can wholeheartedly say that I prefer the warmth of you this time around. Summer is for endless sunshine, hazy evenings and the heady scent of barbecues floating through the air. Days like this are so rare, it's only right that I appreciate them completely whilst they're here.
Perhaps this year we'll make it to the seaside. Oh how I miss the salty air, the cool breeze dancing off the softly lapping waves. The seaside is its own special kind of magic, the memory of it alone makes my heart feel full and a smile appear on my face that I can't stop.
Wimbledon is on in the background as I work; there's something very relaxing about the noise of a tennis ball meeting the racquet, there's a fresh bunch of flowers on the table and I'm reminding myself that from now on, the time is now because if not now, then when?

Do you have any plans for July?
