Today marks the midpoint of my daughter’s summer vacation. It’s bittersweet because we know that the second half always goes by faster than the first.
Many of my friends have not gone on vacation yet, August is their month. When I was a child, we spent the entire summer on Martha’s Vineyard. We’d arrive in June when it was still too cold to swim, and leave Labor Day when the evenings were starting to cool. There were July people, August people, and a few full-season families like ourselves. I remember getting back to Boston after almost three months away, and my bedroom would seem both familiar and unfamiliar.
I don’t spend the entire summer on the Vineyard anymore. We have work and activities that keep us closer to home. And I’m not sure I’d want to. All of my childhood friends still go there, however, I’m fine with a week or two.
These days, I’m more interested in exploring new places, rather than settling into one spot for a few months. I’m inspired by a list of amazing beaches on The Tory Burch Blog, and may use it as a travel guide.Love This, On My Mind
