Out of all four seasons summer has to be my favorite. The warm temperatures bring smiling faces fostered by oversized ice cream cones and endless days at the pool. That’s why I am happy to bring you this issue solely dedicated to my favorite season. 

Whatever your lifestyle–be that a full-time job, a family of five that provides enough laundry for 10 different loads or your 7-year-old schnauzer that requires at least three walks a day–summer is beckoning you to have a little fun. In this issue I have included some exciting summer hot spots for you to enjoy with all of your family and friends, as well as an article dedicated to helping you create the outdoor space of your dreams. 

As always, thank you so much for reading our magazine and giving us feedback every month. We strive to shine a light on people and experiences that make this town amazing and to entertain and inspire you each month.

Enjoy the sunshine, 

Emily Shea
