Welcome to the June 2021 issue of Living. Loving. Growing. online magazine!

With Memorial Day weekend ushering in the unofficial start to summer, we head into June looking forward to not only a change in season but also a change in attitude.

It doesn’t seem to matter how far the years take me past my school days, or how long I have lived in the land of endless summer. “Summertime” still holds all that nostalgia for me. It’s a time to slow down and enjoy the sense of leisure that comes from sitting on the front porch sippin’ iced tea. It’s a time for adventure and travel, with family vacations and road trips with your besties. It’s a time to set down the seriousness of work and school and remember the importance of play. Marco Polo. Riding bikes to the 7-11 for a Slurpee and pixie sticks. Building sand castles. Reading books for enjoyment rather than assignment. It’s a time to have fun!

Join me in embracing all the laid-back good-feels of Summertime!

Wishing you all the best,
Erin Hart
