Summer fun?

Although there are a lot of places reopening, do you still feel safe going out this summer? My wife and I have tried to do a date night lately but patios are too packed or our favorite spot is closed. We believe in supporting local businesses and try to hit those up first but some already closed for good. Yes it is a hard reality but we must overcome the fear and make the best of the summer. Concerts are cancelled, not all the pools are open, and vacation on the beach seems to be a distant dream. Thankfully, your favorite artist and streaming services make it possible to enjoy past live performances, it’s easy to buy a pool for the casa, and why not treat yourself to a staycation. Make the best of your summer by doing something fun and exciting with the ones closest. There are a lot of places to discover in New Mexico, you just have to go out and explore. It gives you a sense of pride to go out there and see how beautiful our state really is. Stay safe wherever you go.
