“Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Walking at the park watching little girls do cartwheels on the lawn reminds me of my childhood and why summertime always brings fond memories.
Freedom from school, fireworks on Fourth of July and my birthday made it a favorite time of year. Eating juicy Jersey tomatoes, husking corn on the back steps, splashing in the pool, playing Wiffleball with our neighborhood friends, savoring Mr. Softee’s sundaes, watching fireflies light up the night, visiting our grandparents at the shore, marching in the Memorial day parade and shopping until midnight during “Moonlight Madness.” A time of simple pleasures left a deep imprint on my heart.
In our last month of summer, I hope you enjoy many memorable moments during this sizzling season.
