The cold weather has me missing more than just the warmth of summer. I'm also missing everything that goes with it. Here are 8 of the things I miss the most about warm sunny days:

1. Sundresses

I hate wearing pants! I miss being able to wear loose, flowy, bright clothing. With the cold weather, you can't go outside if you're not bundled up and definitely not in a cute sundress. I can't wait for summer so my legs can be out and free.

2. Swimming in the ocean

One of my favorite things about summer is going to the beach and swimming in the ocean. In the winter, even though it's cold, I still go to the beach every so often but I can't swim cause it's too cold. Swimming in the ocean isn't the same as swimming in a pool, it's more exciting and energetic. Once it gets warm I'll be the first one in the ocean.

3. Flowers

Once it starts getting warm, the flowers start to bloom. The smell. The colors. The beauty. Yeah, in the fall the leaves change colors and it's pretty but once winter comes, everything is bare. I love when it's summer and everything is fully bloomed and colorful.

4. Iced drinks

It is too cold to order an iced drink in the winter. I miss being able to drink iced coffee without getting frostbite. Once the warm weather comes, so do the iced tea and Pina Coladas.

5. Warm nights

Summer nights are the best. It's perfect weather, not too hot and not too cold, and it gets dark later. I miss being able sit on the roof at 1 A.M. in shorts and look at the stars.

6. Watermelon 

Watermelon is juicy and delicious. But you can't get watermelon in the winter.

7. The sun

Not only does the sun bring warmth, but it also brightens everything. This winter has been very cloudy and gloomy. I can't wait for the summer when it's sunny and cheerful.

8. Driving with the windows down

Windows down and music blasting is better than windows up, heat on, and still freezing my butt off.

10 Reasons The Beach Is The Happiest Place On Earth

"Only worry in the world, is the tide gonna reach my chair?"

There's a reason that everyone vacations to the sandy shores and the salty water.

There's something about windblown hair, ocean waves crashing into land, and the sound of seagulls chirping overhead. There's something about seeing an endless landscape studded with artistry and grace.

There is no place on earth that is better than the beach - no place better for your body, your mind, and your soul.

So here's a comprehensive list of the simplest reasons why the beach is the happiest place on earth:

1. Physical relaxation

There's no better way to decompress than loosening your muscles and relaxing in a laid-back chair.

2. Mental relaxation

When you're having a stressful day, and you feel like you need to get away, go ahead and take a beach day!

3. Lots of Vitamin D

Believe it or not, the majority of people don't get adequate amounts of Vitamin D, so spending a day (or a week) on the beach is good for your health. (also... TAN!)

4. Skin exfoliation & joint relief

The salt in ocean water is great for healing cuts and scrapes, along with providing relief for achy joints and muscles.

5. Stunning views

Is there really anything prettier?

6. Different foods

"Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it." (Forrest Gump)

7. Exciting things to do 

Parasailing, mini golf, go-carts, jet skis, surfing... you can never run out of things to do!

8. Time away from technology

No better way to relax than laying down the screens and absorbing the sunlight and pretty scenery.

9. Different exercise options

When you wake up in the morning, you can do yoga by the water, you can run in the sand, or pretty much thing any other workout that you can imagine.

10. Stress-free environment

Nothing better. In the entire world.
