Birthday candles of Junes past glimmer in my memory as mementos of well wishes and slumber parties. Most distinct though, is the frequency with which I shared a cake with my mother, whose birthday is just two days before mine. Now, I have a third person to share a cake with — my husband’s birthday follows just two days after my own.
And as a June bride, I can’t forget the sense of giddy anticipation a hot, windy Sacramento June morning brought me three years ago as I donned my wedding gown.
With summer now blooming in Norman, the city is flush with opportunities of memories just waiting to be made. Get a start this month by walking tonight’s 2nd Friday Circuit of Art and enjoying the plethora of arts Norman has to offer. Other options this month include Jazz in June, Performing Arts Studio’s Summer Breeze, several performances at Sooner Theatre or the University of Oklahoma and various art exhibits throughout town.
No matter your interest, your age or what your favorite month might be, the coming summer beckons each of us to enjoy experiences that will linger in our minds as eternal summers.
