I was a kid with a summer birthday. I loved this. Not only was I on summer vacation from school, but my birthday is nearly 6 months from that other major gifting holiday, Christmas. For as long as I can remember, when asked what I wanted to do for my birthday, the answer was the same. As a true child born under a water sign, I wanted to go to the lake. We’re still trying to figure out where we are here, on my 9th birthday.
