How I savor summer: As a full time mom and wife, summer tells me it's time to unwind. For me, it's a time to help my children learn and grow in a natural setting, at their own pace.
And then, it's time for my husband and me to take a little weekend away, just us.
And because my husband understands my need for silence and creativity, summer is also a time for me to leave my nest and enjoy a summer program just for me. This means I get to go to a writer's conference where writing poetry is okay. It's actually more than okay, it's expected.
Summer is the perfect time to listen to the wind blow...and no one needs to find their coat, gloves, boots or hats.
