Cheers to the best season, Summer! I don’t know about you, but I’m such a summer baby. I live, eat, breathe, and sleep 90 degrees and sunshine.

Summertime in the Hudson Valley is truly special. To wake up to the bird chirping and fall asleep listening to the crickets and peepers, is my favorite. It can be soothing to sleep with you window open and this.

There is also the blossoming of our flowers, the sights up the green grass with baby blue skies. It seems there’s always something to do, day and night in the summer. The little joys of getting ice cream, enjoying a bon fire with friends and taking a stroll in mother nature.

There is always a lot to look forward to in the Summer. Speaking of this season, let’s welcome in summer solstice with open arms. It is pretty neat how the sun makes it journey for one of the longest paths towards the sky. This is the reason behind there being the most daylight on Summer solstice.

Let’s ring in the celebration of summer here in the Hudson Valley.
