"Summertime, and the livin’ is easy … "
I don’t know about you, but despite our hot summertime temperatures here in the Valley of the Sun, I quite enjoy the slowdown of summer. My kids get a break from the grind of school, we get to do a bit of traveling, and honestly, it’s just nice to take a breath from all the hustle and bustle.
As a native to Arizona, my best childhood memories include warm summer night swim parties, backyard BBQs with family and friends, music festivals, tubing down the Salt River, and boating at one of our many beautiful Arizona lakes. Oh, and let’s not forget the 4th of July and all the fun that comes with celebrating the good old U.S.A.!
I always love our July issue because we tend to focus on light, fun summer topics, food, drinks, and getaways. We hope you can kick back, perhaps by a pool, lake, or on a raft with a cold drink, and relax with this nice, easy read!
Here’s to making fun summertime memories!
Be grateful, be kind, and live well,
