Days of Summer

Memorial Day Weekend. The unofficial start of summer. So, what better way to celebrate our three-day weekend and lazy, warm days ahead than to ask our team members about their favorite summer memories...

The two-week family vacation. Most families flew but we drove. We live in such a great country and I am lucky to have seen a great deal of it! North Dakota to Texas; Nebraska to North Carolina, Washington DC. I think those vacations fed my wanderlust.  
When going on vacation, you need a travel laundry bag.

When I was young my parents would take me to the tide pools along the California coastline. I would see so many wonderful sea creatures including one of my favorites; abalones. I loved how the shells mimicked the ocean's colors and waves.

I have many memories of family BBQ's in back yards playing croquet. Trips to the beach, which many were spent at the bay, that way our parents could let us 5 girls go in the water without the waves... Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Grandparents too...

And I (Zizi Rho Designs) say:
As a kid, I loved summers as that's when I could raid the library, check out 30 books, and just sit and read. And read. And read.
