Summer seems to be a time when people allow themselves a bit more space to experience: their families, the natural world, and new places ? either via books or travel. Why do we choose these months to balance out our otherwise hectic fall, winter, spring lives? Because the sun tells us to! Something about open windows and screen doors, cut grass and the sound of fireworks on the 4th, re-calibrates our ways. Even the frantic scheduling of camps and daycare for otherwise schooled kids can't take the "aaahhh" away from June through August for most of us. So, what type of "summer-er" person are you? Do you stay closer to home or hit the road?
