Rosie and her cousin, Max, surfing down at South Beach
For some reason, I have an almost child-like appreciation for summer this year. June was amazing. As July rolls in, I can only hope for more of the same. Maybe it's because my girls are at such an insanely fun age (7 and 9) and I am having a ball with them on a daily basis. Maybe it's because these are the last few months of my 30s and I'm milking them for all they're worth. (tic tock) Maybe it's because I'm still scarred from the horrendous winter we just got through and so these warm and sunny days are that much more delicious. Maybe it's all of these things. It doesn't matter. I'm loving it. And I'm hoping the magic will continue to hold through July and the rest of the summer. My list of 'to-do's for this month is short, sweet and wonderfully simple. Just like the season itself. Happy July everyone. God Bless America...and summer.
