It’s summer. Or for some of you, it’s almost summer. School is either winding down or already finished and the long days start to blend one into another. Summer is a time for fun, family, and making memories.
When the days get long and hard, when the temps are hot and you feel overwhelmed, let me encourage you to take a moment to pause. Find something that fills your soul. Soak in the warmth and the beauty of summer. Look closely. Even amongst the dirty dishes, endless piles of laundry, and the “I’m bored” statements from kids who don’t get the idea of sleeping in, step outside and look for the beauty of summer. It’s everywhere.
Get your camera out and capture it. Breathe deep and enjoy the colors, the aromas, and dancing sunlight.
