Today is my birthday so I feel a bit nostalgic. When I was growing up, Memorial Day weekend was always the official start of summer. I grew up in the northeastern states so the weather went along with that concept.  Now I've lived in the south my entire adult life including college, and summer seems to start with Spring Break.  In the south, school gets out earlier so families are heading on summer vacations and kids are headed to the pool in early May.  In early August, school begins a new year.  Something about that has never felt quite right. I feel nostalgic for my childhood days of summer lasting from Memorial Day until Labor Day.

Summer is flip flop season, so check out our flops that you can design yourself!  Click here.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
