Helloooo June—okay, I know I'm a day early! But here's the first month of summer coming right up. I also just want to casually say that it's my birthday month and by default my favorite month of the year. There's always been so much excitement in June with the new (best) season upon us! I can NOT wait for summer to get here but in the meantime, we will be doing lots of traveling to get ourselves out in nature or soak up the warm weather. June's schedule looks absolutely crazy. We start the month off already in Switzerland (hello from the alps!), head to Venice shortly after, then we are off to Norway. In between our own travels, we have a few visitors from the States coming our way—one being my sister! Her visit coincidentally lines up with my birthday so it will be nice to be around family that day.
Before we know it, I will be back here writing about how June flew by and I can't believe July is starring back at me. Time flies during this time of year and honestly, all I want to be doing is swimming which isn't so easy in London. If I am honest, during the downtime in the summer I tend to get a bit homesick. I'm so nostalgic for the classic New England summer with long days by the ocean, trips to the lake, hiking in the white mountains, hanging by my parent's pool, BBQs, ice cream...ahhhh. It is probably the number one thing I miss from home and a driving force to return someday. For now, I have to make sure I remind myself to live in the moment and enjoy the British Summertime. London is at its best this time of year and since we moved so close to a park this past autumn, we are excited to have a boost to our summer lifestyle this time around. It has already proven to be top notch!
Wishing everyone a wonderful June and a warm sunny start to the summer!
