C1 what does "la" substitute for here

"Ce que j'aime le plus au mois de juin, c'est me la couler douce"   - is "la" a substitution for la vie here?

Regarding your question what la stands for in the idiomatic phrase se la couler douce, I used Google and found the answer here:

Your hunch that la replaces la vie seems to be correct.

Hi Meriel,

The term is "se la couler douce"  --> take it easy.

So "c'est me la couler douce" follows this pattern as above.

Bonne journée,
