First of all, a big thanks to Amanda who has been a wonderful guest blogger for me while I've been away from the blog. I have another terrific guest blogger who'll be taking over tomorrow, but I'll be back in full swing by Thursday.

I thought I'd quickly pop in today for another Much Love Monday post though, because it just feels weird to skip it.
So what's the thing I'm currently loving? the fact that Wimbledon starts today! Anyone else? I'm aware that there's not a lot of tennis fans who read this blog, but I know there's at least a couple of you out there (I'm looking at you, Ainslie and Avalonne!). I'm looking forward to the drama, the upsets (unless it's against my favourites), the 5 set thrillers, the tennis tantrums, the dramatic camera shots, the hilarious camera shots, seeing the player's new outfits in the traditional white colour (some are VERY cute, you know), eating strawberries and cream to pretend I'm actually there, and texting my dad while he's watching the same thing at home (I love that he loves tennis too, we get to bond over it).

===

How to join in Much Love Monday:
1. Do a blog post that includes a picture of a heart and mention something you love.
2. Leave a link of your blog post in the Linky space below.*
3. PLEASE put in the thing you love in the form's title space.
4. I do appreciate it if you link back to my blog. Thank you :)
* Please leave the link AFTER you've done the post.

Ahh I always get sucked into watching these things. I'm a bit of a night owl, so Wimbledon + World Cup means there's always something to watch late at night. No sleep for me this month haha. I think I'll follow your lead and stock up on strawberries and cream!

ainslie said...

yes! i'm sooo looking forward to it! will be great to see if samantha stosur can go far. and it was rad to see hewitt beat federer after 7 years without a win against him! not looking forward to the whole sleep deprivation thing, though. bring on the coffee and the earl grey!

Yay I'm a tennis fan I love the aggression and the intensity that puts you on the edge of you seat.

I'm not a fan of sports in general, did get hooked on women's volleyball last year, but you make it sound like so much fun!

The movie wimbledon was amazing though!

I am undecided whether I like tennis or not. I've never really understood the rules, so it's not easy for me to follow, but at the same time, tennis just seems like a fun sport to play!

Hehe yay! Thanks for mentioning me! I was out all day, I didn't get to watch or read about Wimbledon, until a blogger friend told me Roger nearly lost in Round One... ahhh seriously, I feel so strongly about him and tennis... sometimes when something like that happens, my heart skips a beat. Ahhhh... nerves! Enjoy!
