Say Good-bye to Summer

In just five days we are officially saying good-bye to the summer of 2015. Yes, it’s Labor Day week-end already – where does the time fly?

Every day I am conscience of how very precious time is. Maybe it’s because I’ve lost a father, a mother, and a sibling. I’ve learned the hard and valuable lesson that every single minute counts.   I try to make the most of every day – every season.

So, do you have any new, exciting, loving memories from this past summer? Memories that will make you smile every time you think of them – every time you see that photo. If not, you still have some time left. You have one full week-end to pack it all in. Summer 2015 isn’t over yet. How will you spend it – with your friends, your family, your-self?

In case you are looking for something fun, check out the Thirsty Moose in Poynette, WI. I ran across this place totally by accident and what a hoot! There was live music, dancing, sand pits, and sunshine. I couldn’t ask for anything more. Who knows, maybe I’ll visit again to celebrate the end of summer. And maybe I’ll see you there.

The important thing is to enjoy your time, however you choose to spend it.

Enjoy While You Can


The weather these past couple of days is a rude reminder that summer is almost over. Oh sure, we still have some sunshine and warmth coming our way, but haven’t you noticed that the days are getting shorter?

So before it’s too late, take some time to enjoy the beautiful flowers that surround you. You know, the ones you hurry past on your way to your next meeting, your next whatever. Take just a moment to appreciate those same flowers that you take for granted every single day.

They won’t be around much longer. Pretty soon they will be covered with a mound of snow and gone until next spring.

I found this beautiful array of color just minutes from my home. They’re gorgeous!   And just taking a few minutes to stop and enjoy them helped me put things in perspective. It’s a reminder of the things in life that are important to me, and to take the time to enjoy them while I can.

I’d love to know where you’ve found beauty, whether it be flowers or the sounds of birds or a hug from a good friend. Whatever it is, savor it and treasure it – you never know what will happen next.
