This week on Romance Writers Weekly, Leslie Hachtel asks:
What memories of summer make you feel good all year 'round?
Here in Northern BC, there certainly are parts of winter I absolutely love. Fresh, clean snow shining on a cold, bright blue day is a wonderful image to take out and remember, even in the heat of August. But there is definitely something special about summer memories. Maybe it’s the laziness that a hot sun and cool breeze invokes. Maybe it's the chance to get together more often with friends and family outside of the usual hectic school year.
No matter what it the reason, the memory of summer that make me feel good all year round is time in our boat with Mr. C. Whether we're alone or with friends and family, fishing or exploring, remembering our time out on the water is always sure to lift my spirits, not matter how depressing and gloomy the day is. It's not a big boat. It's not a fancy one. We don't always go to the same lake and don't always have the best of weather. Sometimes we have trouble at the dock, sometimes the motor doesn't work or the gear gets mangled. But we always enjoy our time together – and that's the best memory of all.
Feel free to leave me a comment about your favourite summer memory. And after you've done that, be sure to hop over to Leslie's blog. Since she was the one to propose this topic, I'm sure she's got some great memories she wants to share. You'll find her thoughts here.
