Summer should not be about hurried agendas and rushed appointments. While adults don’t get the luxury of childhood and those designated months off, I cherish these days when I get to slow down and soak the sunshine. I see many posts of July 4th about fireworks and those are great moments. But for me this 4th was about lying down and gazing at the sky….
Here is to cherry-stained lips and spontaneous bursts of laughter; here is to children splashing in the water and to hours of skipping stones. Here is to lingering afternoons with friends and family and to endless sunsets that fill you with contentment. I hope to find time for more such days this summer, and wish each of you a summer that is the perfect balance of reckless adventure and calm rejuvenation!
