How is summer half over?

July 19, 2013

It seems like once the middle of July hits, summer starts to go by even faster. I’m already starting to greet the moon  earlier and even though it’s still over 90 degrees out, Target is telling me it’s almost time for back-to-school season. Where has the time gone? There is still a lot of summer to pack in to the upcoming weeks. Art on the Green, Sandpoint Music Festival, and the Wooden Boat Show are still in the horizon.

So for this weekend I set a goal for myself (and for you if you want to join me). I want to soak in every bit of summer I can. Take time to be outside with friends and family, and just enjoy the simple things. Fires, hikes, swimming, floating, sunbathing… whatever it is you want to do just enjoy it and take in every moment. And any moments you capture be sure to share! #SINI or post them directly on the Facebook Page. Before we know it the leaves will change and the weather will turn.
