I’m writing this letter on the first official day of summer. The skies are blue as far as the eye can see, the sun is shining, and there’s a gentle, cool breeze coming in my office window. It’s heavenly.
Summer seems to get shorter and shorter here in New England and how I spend this time becomes more and more important to me.
While I like to keep my schedule loose when it comes to social engagements or non-work activities, this year I’m mixing things up a bit.
Instead of taking each summer day as it comes, I’m intentionally scheduling vacation time and planning any trips Melissa and I would like to take.
In the past, I would have no set plans at all and I would only have few days marked off my calendar.
