Welcome to the joyous month of June, dear readers!

It’s no wonder we get excited when we flip the calendar from May to June. This month marks the beginning of summer, and what’s not to love about that? It is the time of family vacations, beach trips, swimming pools and ice cream. As kids, we loved summer because it was time away from school. As adults, we love summer because it means more time with our family. And, every day lasts just a bit longer, making breezy summer evenings a real treat. Yes, the days are longer, the nights are warmer, and people just seem to be happier. I think that’s because in the summer we spend more time outside, whether in the pool, in our gardens or engaging in a fun outdoor activity. The extra time in the sun creates more Vitamin D in our system, so not only is summertime nostalgic and fun, but it’s also good for us too! Treat yourself, whether it’s a June jaunt, an exotic ice cream flavor or a phone call to someone you haven’t talked with in ages and enjoy the warmth that will surround us this month. May you continue to enjoy good health and smile on the sun.
