Sun-Kissed Slice of Summer Layout

Typically the Labor Day weekend here in the states means that summer is coming to an abrupt end.  It means floating in the pool one last time, or splashing in the lake.  It means soaking up as much sun as you possibly can before the long winter hits.

Make sure that you remember to document all the summer’s memories–before it is gone.  Did you take a vacation to the ocean?  Or maybe just a weekend away to the cabin?  Whatever it was, make sure you have it in your scrapbooks for years to come!

This Way To The Beach

Hello everybody! Summer is starting to wind down a bit in my household.

Right now it is a mere 98 degrees here in Minnesota.  It’s not always cold here.  We do get the heat occasionally, and with that comes the humidity, and then the “feels like” temperature goes up even more.

With there being 10,000 lakes here usually the place to cool off is in the lake.  However, for Advisor Beth Thomander and her family of Nova Scotia Canada, cooling off means a jump in the pool.  That just sounds refreshing right about now.

How do you beat the heat?
