June 2015

We made it! Summer is officially here (well, after June 21) and it brings about a whole slew of new things to look forward to. Days get longer, healthy living routines change to involve the outdoors and schedules often include much more playtime — for adults and kids.

June also holds fun nationally-recognized days both familiar and not so conventional:

Best Friends Day, Monday, June 8: Friends are important! Sometimes as adults, friendships take a backseat but there are several reasons they shouldn’t. They provide companionship, support and an outlet that is incomparable — even (or especially!) in summer.

National Corn on the Cob Day, Thursday, June 11: Who knew there was an entire day dedicated to one of summer’s most infamous foods? We didn’t here at Nature’s Pathways, but we’ll be marking it on our calendars from now on. (Keep in mind that Wisconsin corn on the cob isn’t typically ready until late July, so a belated celebration may be in order.) Yum!

Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21: The third Sunday of June is always set aside to honor our favorite fathers — whether they’re biological, adoptive or a surrogate of some sort. We love our dads and love the special day to spoil them!

Take Your Dog to Work Day, Friday, June 26: It’s no surprise that Nature’s Pathways loves pets, so when we saw this nationally recognized day distinguishing one of our favorites, we had to add it to the list.

Have a great June, and let us know which of the above you’ll be celebrating this year via our social media pages!
