Ultimate Summer Adventure
Hello, Friends! We’re so excited to bring you our summer 2023 Relax & Radiate Crate from The Girlfriend. This is a special quarterly box because summer is such a special season.
When I was a kid, I counted the days until school was out so I could enjoy sleepovers and stay up later than normal. My friends and I would soak up every single drop of daylight. We’d run through the sprinkler, eat watermelon and chase after lightning bugs. Summer was the season when many of my most cherished memories were formed. Indeed, the season plays a starring role in the highlight reel of my childhood. It’s the time of year when people just seem happier. The longer days and the warmer weather create the perfect atmosphere for enjoying an adventure.
I love this quote from author Jenny Han: “Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer.”
Our theme this quarter is Ultimate Summer Adventure. When I was a kid, we didn’t have loads of money, but one summer we piled into our station wagon and drove from Texas to Colorado to see Pikes Peak. I’ll never forget this alpine wonderland’s breathtaking scenery. But even if you don’t have the time or money to go away for a bucket list vacation, you can make memories at home. Take a day trip, go on a bike ride, drive around with the music blaring and the windows down. Grab a friend and go out for a banana split. Pick strawberries, pack a picnic, be a tourist in your own city. There’s something about summer that just brings me to life. My wish is that it will be the same for you.
At The Girlfriend, our aim is always to help you relax and radiate your best self in every season and to help you connect with other wonderful women.
To honor this time of year, we’ve rounded up another amazing array of surprises for you so that you can savor every last second of summer before transitioning into fall. And don’t forget to join our Relax & Radiate Club on Facebook, so you can gain access to special giveaways, contests, connections and inspiring content created specifically for you.
