Summer is here and change is in the air!
As excited children everywhere begin to retire their books and welcome the fun adventures that lie ahead, we begin to embrace the freedom that summer often brings.
So wonderfully carefree! I love summer for a variety of reasons: the days are longer, the air is warmer and the anticipation is greater. It brings to my mind, delightful memories of sipping ice cold lemonade, the sound of laughter, the smell of sunscreen and traveling to faraway places.
In France, the country that inspires Couleur Nature; the beginning of summer means leaving your worries behind and experiencing the joys that await you. The French refer to this as, “Le Grand Départ” or “The Great Departure”. They take this time of year to journey to new destinations for a little well deserved rest and relaxation. We could all take notes from the French on how to appreciate the pleasures that life has to offer, I know I certainly could!
However, if you don’t find yourself able to explore new and exciting places this summer like those of our French friends, pas de soucis! Take a break, grab some pals, mix a cocktail and enjoy the sun! Bonjour Summer!
