June & July Theme: Summer Like A Kid (Adult Style)


One of the things I miss most about childhood was how clearly seasons shifted from one to the next. Summer was the season we looked forward to all year, and as each day and night inched closer to fall, every child could recognize the earlier sunset and cool night breeze as a sign all good things must come to an end.

For the months of June and July, we’re exploring ideas around bringing back a little of that summer magic into our adult lives. If you could have one more summer as a kid, how would you spend that time, given all the hindsight you have as an adult?

  • Would you relish in your freedom by embracing boredom?
  • Take a road trip with your best friend?
  • Learn something new?
  • Eat whatever you want?
  • Watch a TON of TV?
  • Break all the rules your parents enforced?
  • Make things from stuff you find?
  • Build a fort?
  • Sleepover at a friends house the whole weekend?
  • Read Harry Potter again for the 8th time?

The point of this theme is to take all pressure out of making the most of this season of leisure and embracing the simple pleasures that used to fill our days before responsibility or even social media became part of our everyday existence.

If you have kids, it could be a fun exercise to do with them—to think about the ways to offer a summer like the one you experienced as a kid, before video games and appointments and packed schedules became the norm.

I would LOVE to hear how you plan to make the most of this season, and how you’re able to bring back a little bit of the magic of these longer days and warm nights. I’m hoping this is the year I bring back a little bit of that magic and make the most of a season I used to wait for all year. We will be combining June and July with this theme to give our team a bit more time to enjoy the summer months and tackle a couple of big initiatives we have planned for the second half of the year.
