Last night I wanted to try to see Jupiter and Venus hanging out together in the sky. Only it stayed light so late that I went to bed instead. I am always blown away by how late the sun stays out in summer. I know it happens every year and yet it never fails to surprise me. The dog days of summer are upon us and while I have to say the heat has been slightly oppressive this year, there is a sweetness to summer that brings me back to when I was in middle school and ate giant cookie ice cream sandwiches at the pool all day without a care in the world. Now that the Fourth is here and summer is in full swing, I am going to make more of an effort to enjoy the simple things that I used to and soak up this season where things seem to slow down a bit cause it’s too blasted hot to move very fast. I have plans to go to my fiance’s family 4th celebration and seafood boil this weekend and am looking forward to that quite a bit. Do you guys have big plans for the Fourth?
