Guys. I know it’s not until tomorrow, but let’s just do this a day early, huh? Rocky Leon would like to welcome you to June:
This is my favorite time of year, and makes me happy to be in Michigan. I anticipate the sun, the beach, the back yard, flowers, warm nights, music and a giggling toddler to whom I can show it all.
On another, more freelancey note – today I discovered that I have a fondness for the word botched.
Now go. Be in June. For 30. Glorious. Days.
It’s officially summer in Michigan. So far we’ve:
- Celebrated the Solstice with live music, kittens, fire and shandy on a farm
- Napped under a poolside cabana
- Attended a birthday pool party for five-year-old triplets
We’ve also survived the first serious heat wave of the season (with a little help from the parents’ air conditioning). Now, the days are for gentle yoga and dead-heading the tiger lilies.
The above video is how I’ve opened the season for the past couple of years. Rocky Leon is so happy, and the sky is so blue. You can’t watch this and not be happy. And if you can, check your pulse, yo.
