What is your favorite childhood summer memory? Mine has always been this one time spending the day with my mother. I will always remember that day, the blazing sun hovering over us as my mother and I sun dried vegetables out on our porch. Don’t know why but that’s my favorite memory. I think it’s the innocence of the moment, life was simple and pure. Uneventful and precious at the same time. Plus, when you’re REALLY young (preteen yrs) spending time with your mother was the BEST.
What my husband and I love to do now during the summer is spending time at the harbor. Before Zoey was born, we would go sailing on the weekends. It was such a relaxing routine after a long week of work. Haven’t done that yet this summer b/c Zoey is still too young.
This is the harbor (at sunset) where my husband would take us out to sail.
I hope to create summer memories that Zoey will cherish for a lifetime. To start a ritual that she can look forward to each summer. Maybe dinner nights at the garden? Or going to the beach and picking seashells in Cape Cod? Or perhaps taking the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard and biking around the island? Maybe we’ll find time to do them all every summer!
What do you like to do during the summer and what are your favorite childhood memories? Please share!
