Be Your Own… Summertime!
CREATE YOUR OWN SUMMER AT HOME!
As we grow up, summer seems to get shorter and shorter. From having three months as children down to two weeks or less as an adult can sometimes make us feel trapped, or like everyone else is having more fun than us at home. So this summer, why not bring the holidays to you?
Want to enjoy an Italian summer? Grab some wine and pizza on the way home from work and try to envision the Colosseum outside your window. You can even turn on some opera music and make yourself an Aperol spritz.
Are you wishing you were in Barcelona? Make some sangria and invite some friends over for tapas. You could even try your luck at whipping up some paella. If you have kids, you can even show them pictures of some of Barcelona’s beautiful art and make some paper mosiacs with them.
Do you want to be on the beach this summer? Turn on the sound of waves and turn up the heat and you can lay out in your living room with sunglasses and soak up the ‘sun’.
Better yet, search the internet for different festivals and events going on in your town, or a quick trip outside your town. You’ll be surprised at what you did not know what was going on. Maybe a museum near you has a new exibhit, or you can explore a historical area around you. Pack a lunch and make it a day out for you and your boyfriend or kids, or even just yourself. Maybe call up your friends and plan an impromptu get together for dinner and drinks tonight.
Summertime is about making the best of everyday, even if it is a busy day. Use this summer to recconect with old friends or discover a new place with new friends. Every day in the summer is an opportunity, make sure you take it!
