Summer weather is creeping in, and like so many others, I've been enjoying the sunny days and warmer nights. Driving around town, it seems like many others are embracing this and making the best of the situation we all find ourselves in. It's refreshing to see activity start up around us, from families waking around town, to utilizing outdoor dining in restaurants, or, like me, enjoying the view in our own backyards.
The weather and surroundings are helping me to feel even more hopeful as we enter into new phases and changes relating to this new world around us. Things are different, and while they are likely going to be so for some time, they won't be forever. However, with the right perspective, optimism can always last, as long as we remember to let it.
