Summer Lovin’

Summer Lovin

It’s June. Which means summer is nigh, and soon kids will be out of school having all the fun. Seriously. They have ALL.THE.FUN . – running around barefoot, rubbing their freedom in your face, while you have to go to work to pay the bills.

But, in your darkest hour of despair, keep this one thing in mind: there are still things only adults can do during the summer.  Neener neener neener.

Here are 10 ways to enjoy summer as an adult: Continue reading

Now You See Them, Now You Don’t

On the edge

Yesterday was the first day we felt a hint of fall in New York.  Although it was still a balmy 62 degrees, some of the wussier Yanks hit the streets in fleece.  I mean, REALLY?  I will wait until The Last Possible Second to give up wearing flip-flops.  It has to be subzero weather – because I’m from Wisconsin, and I was born in a snowbank.  (Also this may or may not be part of my Navy Seals training.)

I was just talking to my sister this weekend about how much I loved camp when I was a kid.  I had my first crush at band camp (I’m a walking cliche), I developed a firm handshake at leadership camp (though I still got shoved into lockers later in high school), and I learned that you can survive a fall onto concrete from the top bunk of a bunk bed in your sleep at tennis camp.

What are your favorite camp memories?

Check out these fun photos of pop culture icons at camp, like Bob Dylan at Herzl Camp in ’57 above.
