It's June and the summer soltice is approaching on Sunday June 21, 2015 at 12:39 PM on the east coast. As a kid (and as an adult) I love watching the days grow longer and the longest day, June 21st, is bittersweet. I enjoy the light of the longest day but know that the next day will be a bit shorter and we are heading toward the shortest day. The summer soltice is more importantly the first day of Summer! And I love summer - it means spending time outdoors, going to the beach, going on vacation and another year of Camp Aunt Debbie!
I am blessed to have a nephew and niece who like to spend time with me. In 2003, Camp Aunt Debbie (CAD) was born out of necessity for my nephew. He spent a week with me and we created a week of fun, education and little rule breaking. It always includes an amusement park, a museum, and ice cream for breakfast. We stay up late, watch movies, sleep in and order pizza. It's great fun and I am looking forward to creating memories with my niece this year in August! While there is no age limit to CAD, my nephew has a busy summer full of work and activities. Thankfully, we will have the opportunity to spend time together in Disney in July.
What are your plans for the summer? What memories will you create? It doesn't take a lot of money to create and build memories but it does take one of our most precious resources, time. So find a few minutes to spend time with the people you love.
Ice cream for breakfast, anyone?
Peace, Love and Sparks! Deb
