These June quotes will have you falling in love with summertime all over again.
It’s no wonder we get excited when we flip the calendar from May to June. June marks the beginning of summer, and what’s not to love about that? Summer is the time of family vacations, beach trips, swimming pools, and ice cream. As kids, we loved summer because it was time away from school. As adults, we love summer because it is more time to spend with our family.
What’s your favorite thing about June?
The days are longer in the summer, the nights are warmer, and people just seem to be happier. There’s a reason for that. In the summer we spend more time outside, whether in the pool, in our gardens, or engaging in a fun outdoor activity.
The extra time in the sun creates more Vitamin D in our system which reduces depression. So not only is summertime nostalgic and fun, but its good for us too!
Our list of 50 June quotes will bring out the June bug in you and get you just as excited for summer as we are here at Everyday Power. Enjoy!
