Bring on the Summer

As we head into the summer months, I find my heart filled with anticipation. Louisiana’s warm months can be brutal, but the joy of family time and outdoor gatherings makes the heat bearable.

The landscape of Louisiana during the summer months is nearly overwhelming. From the majestic cypress trees to the vibrant fields of wildflowers, I always find myself drawn in by the beauty of my home state. I love to watch the sun rise and set, the warm hues painting the sky in a multitude of colors. Nature is truly God’s work of art.

While we may be unable to enjoy all the activities that we are used to due to the expected higher than average heat this year, I still look forward to the simple pleasures of the summertime. I’m looking forward to spending time outdoors away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, leaving my phone inside and spending time with the grandchildren while they are off of school for the summer, and writing more.

As we head into the summer months, I wish all of you a happy and safe summer. May it be filled with outdoor activities, family gatherings, and crawfish boils. May you find joy in the simple pleasures that this season brings and may you take the time to appreciate the beauty of the natural world around us.

Happy Summer!
