Favorite Summer Movie – You may laugh at this, but I’d have to say "Dazed and Confused." Set in the summer of 1976, it focuses on a group of high school kids who are about to be seniors and some who are about to be freshmen. It’s hilarious.
Favorite Summer Cocktail – Mojito (especially the ones made at the Roadside Café in the Outer Banks)
Favorite Summer Song – "Red Red Wine" by UB40
Favorite Summer Outfit – Anything seersucker, sundresses
Favorite Summer Reading – Novels by Anita Shreve make for a good summer read, as does anything by Penny Vincenzi or Pat Conroy. I also enjoy some classic W. Somerset Maugham during the summer.
Favorite Summer Moment – Lying on the beach, hearing the waves crash, knowing that I don’t have to be anywhere but there. I also like dusk when you can hear the crickets, see the lightning bugs and hear kids in the neighborhood playing hide-and-go-seek or freeze tag. That’s quintessential summer to me.
