Every year my whole family gathers this week at my parent’s house in North Falmouth to celebrate the 4th of July. We go to the beach, eat my mother’s amazing coffee cake for breakfast (she makes 3), hang out on the deck, and just enjoy life. There’s always lots of food and fun. My daughter gets to play with her cousins, and despite the inevitable meltdowns, she’ll have a blast.
Summer is a special time especially in New England. Don’t let it go by without finding time to get out of your office and enjoy the simple pleasures that the season brings. Wherever you are, I hope that you take some time off this week to celebrate with your family and friends.
