The summer in Minnesota offers the best of family, food, and festivities. 

We have the joy of lake time. Where life slows, relaxation wraps its gentle arms around you and your mind, body and spirit can reset and renew. 

For me, the balance of family, friends, fun and relaxation is most available over the Fourth of July holiday.  

It offers a great opportunity to be intentional about how we spend time and enjoy the results of our hard work during the winter months. 

I savor the laughter, the music, the board games, the connections, and the way we’re all present when we’re on the water and away from work.  

The return to work certainly feels bittersweet this time of year.
