Summer has generally been good to me. Even though I don't love the hot weather, some of my best memories took place during the summer. Everything from my first kiss to my wedding happened during the summer. I have done a lot of traveling in the summer months–I spent one summer living in Panama City, Panama, studying abroad, and another year I moved to New York City for the summer for Conner's legal internship.
The road trip to South Dakota that we took earlier this summer is my best recent memory. It was so nice to get away with my husband and children, and just be happy and enjoy life, the beauty of our country, and the kitschiness of the roadside tourist attractions.
