It’s (un)officially summer! Technically speaking summer doesn’t start for about a month, but most of us think of Memorial Day as the start of the summer season & in honor of that date I wanted to share this month’s Instagram feature as a warning of sorts.
The warning being that you should wear sunscreen! I look back on moments like this and think how dumb I was not to take care of my skin. I’m all for trying to have a nice summer color, but do it safely not by burning like I did.
In tradition here are 4 facts about this photo.
- This was taken the summer I was interning in Chicago at DePaul University.
- I spent the day outside at the Corona (I think) Beach Volleyball Tournament
- I had a horrible tan line for most of the summer from this day of sun.
- This was one of the few days I willingly sat outside in the sun long enough to get a burn, I typically get too hot for summer activities.
How are you celebrating the start of the summer?
