Summer Quotes That Will Make You Actually Like Summer

by Kiersten Hickman

I'm sure when Frozen was released a few years back, you finally felt like Disney understood your personality. I'm not talking adventurous like Anna or rebellious like Elsa, but the fact that "the cold doesn't bother you anyway." You're in a ice queen and you know it, which is pretty much why you hate summer. So I'm hoping that a few summer quotes might make you actually like the season.

I know I'm asking for the impossible, especially if you hate to sweat. Summer means sweating through you shirt, chaffing, mosquitos, frizzy hair, melted makeup, and restless nights because sleeping in the heat sucks. I get it, summer can sometimes be the absolute worst.

But it's hard to not enjoy a new season, especially when it means enduring it for three or four months. So instead of concentrating on the negative, let's look at the positive: Sunsets, bonfires, beach days, frosé, ice cream, and so much more. If this is only slightly getting you excited for this new season, then I will turn you to some of the best with words to get you revived and ready for the season ahead.
