Just whisper the word "summer" to a kid, and you'll put on a musical in their minds. A vibrant scene where school is out, ice cream trucks are singing, and there's veritas in the very idea that playing with a garden hose is a perfectly acceptable agenda for an entire afternoon.
The mental stage production doesn't quite have the same simple magic for an adult. Because when you're grown, life doesn't stop for summer. Summer looks just like spring and all the other seasons: Wake up. Work. Come Home. Sleep. The emails keep on sending. The bathroom still needs cleaning.
But. BUT. What if you decided right here, right now, in the summer of 2018 to skip most of your chores until fall and recapture some of that off-duty enchantment?
It's totally doable. And we're going to help.
