Happy first day of Summer Chic Readers!!! Wahooo!! Summer is one of my favorite times of the year because the weather is nice and it used to signify relaxing, swimming a lot, hanging out with friends and family, going to the beach, vacationing and eating ice cream often (basically most of my very favorite things all in one season!). I say “used to” though because those were the kind of summers I was so fortunate to have growing up and while still in school (oh how I miss College sometimes!). Unfortunately work, unlike school, in the real world doesn’t warrant a 3 month long break of “no work” but maybe it should! Just kidding that’s a long time, yet I don’t think that our country stresses the importance of vacations at all. Its amazing what a trip away, or even just a few days off, can do for your mind, productivity and overall well-being. It has been proven that work productivity and creativity are reinvigorated when you take a vacation! Regardless though I still love summer even in the real world since I do still get to go swimming, hang out with my friends and family, try to go to the beach a few times at least and still eat ice cream often. Essentially the only two things missing from my “adult” summers when compared to my “kid” summers are relaxing and vacationing…guess I should start planning a vacay/trip right now! So be inspired and go plan a vacation or trip right now!
Hope everyone is enjoying this first weekend of summer!
