Here’s to the Dog Days of Summer

Community Relations & Advertising Consultant, Lake Cities Living

Wow, here we are in June already!  It’s funny how time flies when we’re having fun!  Hopefully everyone can look back to the first half of 2016 and count many blessings, fruitful experiences and opportunities.

Now, that we look up and start the beginning of our summer, we can focus on these “dog days” that lie ahead:  hot, sunny days filled with iced tea and pastel summer clothing, with the hopes for backyard grilling topped off with a cool dip in the pool. Road trips, vacations and all sorts of summer adventures lie in our future.

June is the month when we get to celebrate the importance and appreciation for fathers. Celebrating the men in our lives is a wonderful privilege as we pause to think of the influence men contribute to our families, workplace, churches and community.  We don’t have to limit our Father’s Day celebration to our dads, stepdads and granddads.  We all have been influenced by male teachers, mentors, pastors, friends, uncles, brothers and even our sons.  I encourage everyone to take this Father’s Day and tell the important men in your life how they have made a difference in you.

On a separate note, I get the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people that contribute such valuable services to our families and Lake Cities community.  This month it’s been my privilege to work with Corinth Vet Clinic on our cover feature.  Dr. Carol Eddy and Dr. Kristin Kerce have such a dedicated and enthusiastic team and it was delightful to work with them on the cover project.  They are so committed to assisting each of their furry (or scaly) patients with health and wellness.  As many of us know, pets bring such joy to our lives and it is the goal of Corinth Vet Clinic to treat your pet(s) like their very own and show them love, compassion and excellent care.

July 4th is upon us and as Americans we all have patriotic celebrations and traditions that we look forward to each year.  As we plan our fireworks, buy picnic supplies and send out invitations to family and friends, let’s remember to reflect and discuss with each other and especially our children how and why our country was birthed into this great Republic.  Through struggle and separation from Great Britain, we have the privilege of living our lives with unprecedented freedoms and liberty.  We must never take this for granted and it is important to reflect on and appreciate those that went before us who sacrificed so that we can live in the greatest nation of all time.

Happy Father’s Day!
Happy Independence Day!
God bless this great Nation!
