Summer is such a nostalgic time of year for me. It’s a season that reminds me of freedom and finally having the opportunity to travel and explore. When I was younger, we would take trips to the most beautiful places during the summer.
The most memorable was spending the entire summer in Muskoka, Canada. Even to this day, it’s still one of the most magical places in the world to me. It’s a child’s playground because you’re completely surrounded by nature and water, which makes for some incredibly lasting memories. The days were filled with activity and the evening were about playing games or sometimes just lazily sitting on the porch watching a summer lightning storm like fireworks.
I also can’t get enough of summer days because it’s the time when my children are out of school, and for our family, summer is when we can run around together, enjoy leisurely meals, and truly connect with one another. It’s about living in the moment, and being able to watch your kids just enjoy themselves, doing their own thing. Ryder, for example, loves anything to do with water. He has quickly become a strong little swimmer and is so courageous when he gets in the water.
