I love summer so much - I love having my children home, the easing up of the schedule, the beach, the long hours of sunlight. I've been busy, but it's a different kind of busy in the summer. Those extra hours of sunlight in the afternoon make all the difference. I'm spending lots of time on the beach, but plenty of other activities are filling those extra hours too.
If you're from around here, or if you know me in person, you may know that we're gearing up big-time for the Jewel Ball. This is my 7th and last year as an active member of LP...a little bittersweet, but I'm pretty well ready to move onto other projects and ride out my days as an advisory member. All the big print jobs, meetings, events, and preliminary things leading up to the main event are done so now I'm just doing presidential things like hanging out at ribbon-cutting ceremonies and signing final vendor contracts. That first week of August we'll all be working non-stop straight through the party, into the night, all of Sunday and right on into Monday morning!
I'm looking forward to the party, but I'm also very much looking forward to beyond the party. More time for the beach, perhaps.
