Live a Little Monday - 3 Tips to Savor the Summer and Not Let it Go...Ever

Did Your Summer Go Too Fast?
Did Your Summer Go Too Fast?
This is the last week of summer vacation for my kids and I must say that it was way too short.  Was it like that for you too or is it just me?  As I get older, it seems that life is on hyper speed and there is never enough of the slow, delicious days of summer anymore.

What Do YOU Miss About Summers of Long Ago?
I remember when I was a kid, it seemed like the days were never ending and the summer romances were as abundant as the fireflies.  Now, finding a firefly is as rare as finding a moment to enjoy a little romance with my main squeeze of 20 years. I wonder what my kids will remember about their summers when they are my age?  Will they have fond memories or simply memories of uncompleted summer packets and me screaming at them to stop singing, dancing, running, screaming etc., so I can get some work done. 

How to Savor the Summer and Not Let it Go...Ever

How to Savor the Summer and Not Let it Go...Ever
As the glow of my summer tan fades into the pasty white pale of winter, I have a few ways I am going to savor the summer.
  1. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Summer Sunrises - I have so many pictures from this summer and of summer's past and I plan on perusing them as often as I need a summer fix.
  2. Let's Eat, Drink and Be Merry! - There is no reason to enjoy all of the awesome summer recipes for food and drink only during the short summer.  I plan on living it up with a watermelon martini sitting by the fire in February.
  3. Close Your Eyes and Go There - This summer on vacation, we had a great room with a private balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.  I spent probably too much time out there working instead of savoring the view but I have the sights and sounds of that relaxing spot ingrained upon my mind. There is every reason in the world for me to revisit that place in my mind as often as I wish with just a simple meditation.

P.S.- People always ask me where I get my organic food and personal care products and I love to tell them about The Green PolkaDot Box! Backed by the Organic Consumer's Association and, you can easily buy NonGMO organic groceries, including Harvest Fresh Organic produce, at wholesale pricing online.  It's like a Sam's club but focused on products for green, healthy living! You can even shop by dietary restrictions like gluten free, vegan or diabetic and it all comes right to your front door. Enjoy!
