What are your plans for summer? I’ve been dreaming of June since the dead of winter, and now that it’s finally here, all I can think about is swimming in the ocean. I went to the beach a few weeks ago, and the cold water stung my toes. Now that the weather is warming up, I’m venturing back out this weekend and hope to be able to run into the waves without immediately retreating.

During quarantine last year, more than any other time, summer was the loneliest for me. There were no date nights in cozy restaurants or an impromptu catch up with friends over a cheeseboard after work. The other night, I went to grab a drink with friends and thought, “Man, it feels good to be back at a tiki bar!” I’m so looking forward to more of those ‘Man, it’s good to be back’ moments in the coming weeks.

What are your plans? Anything you’re excited about?
