Even though the official start of summer was a couple of weeks ago, July 4th is a mental marker for me that summer is in full swing. We’ll get our first spikes of really hot weather that will warm up our neighborhood swimming pond and Connecticut’s own natural playground, the Long Island Sound. It’s one of the things that I love about living near a coastline. I still pinch myself that we have access to miles of beautiful beaches. Starting now and for the next couple of months before school starts, we’ll soak up as much sunshine, swimming and sandcastle building as possible. And ice cream.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend xo
