July Letters

Dear July,
You are the epitome of summer for me and in Vermont, you are especially lovely.  You might be the best month of the year, because we are in the midst of summer, but we aren't approaching those days in August, when the world gets a little sad because school is on the horizon for every kid out there. July, let's make this the best summer yet. 

Dear Independence Day,
You are certainly one of my favorite holidays.  I get all sorts of giddy thinking about hanging out with friends with barbecues, sparklers, s'mores, and fireworks.  You certainly know how to party and I hope our patriotic celebration includes all of these things.  So let's bring out the red, white, and blue!

Dear First Paycheck,
You rolled in today(!!) which means we are officially leaving the student days behind us.  And it feels so good!  Now I guess we can get serious about those student loans. 

Dear Vermont,
We have been here about a month and we are enjoying every bit of you.  Everything is beautiful and breathtaking.  I am soaking it all in, because I know summer doesn't last forever.  Good thing I try to have year round outdoor hobbies, so I can look forward to every season you have in store for us.  You are totally killing it this summer.

Dear New Job,
We are off to a slow start.  Hopefully, we can figure each other out and be good friends.  I just want you to know that I am doing my best.

Dear Manchester Outlets,
You are way too much fun.  I am trying to keep my distance because dangerous things can happen with so many deals at my disposal.  I think we can work out something that keeps us all sane and speaking to each other.  I just love the shopping possibilities you offer to this small town.

Dear Hiking,
I can't wait to get lost in these mountains, figuratively speaking. This Saturday we are coming for you!  I'm awaiting steep trails and beautiful vistas.  Hope you can deliver.

Xoxo, Katie
