“It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.”
― Maud Hart Lovelace
In San Leandro, June through August are months of sunshine, ripe, summer produce, and countless ways to enjoy our city. I look forward to summer every year, as I feel it is the time when we all breathe a little deeper, and make enjoying life more of a priority. Why do these warmer months bring out the best in us? For me, it’s the extended family time. From late nights of lawn toss in the backyard, to swim days at my mom’s house, to the week of camping by the lake with friends. I love the togetherness summer brings, and I love celebrating the freedoms we have in this country (two of my sons are US Marines, hoorah)!
