It's a tricky thing when two holidays mesh. It's hard to spread your love across both equally. Why we did have a marvelous Father's Day, we skipped the excitement of Summer. All of us northerners wait a looong time for summer, so I think it deserves attention. I'm declaring today to be the day of the summer bucket list. I'm going to make a list of all the things I don't want to miss this summer. (And then I'll likely cross half of them off in favor of just staying where we like best-home.) Warmth, bodies of water, canoes/kayaks, seashells, homegrown produce, windows open, barefoot in the grass, catching butterflies, picnics, fresh flowers in vases at all times, outside until bedtime... So much good awaits us. Welcome summer!
