We all know the song… Summer Loving, had me a blast. Summer Loving, happened so fast… As we head down the beach and sit on the porch of our Jersey Shore rental or lounge in the yard of our beach house, most of us can sing hit song from the musical Grease. We saw the…[Read More]
Is there really a difference between 60 degree days in March or April and 60 degree days in September or October? Isn’t the temperature the same? How do we get the “aaahhhh” feeling in the Spring and that “mmmm” sensation in the Fall? Shorts and sweatshirts during football season. Jeans and t-shirts during March Madness.…[Read More]

Flowers. Chocolate. Jewelry. An aloe plant. A poem. Dinner. They have all been the prize to a sweetheart at one point or another. If you’re lucky enough to have someone to give or receive with, than hopefully you haven’t taken that person for granted since the last gift. Unless you’re one of the few people that actually put a big red ribbon on a Lexus to the tune of that annoying jingle, than you have given real gifts. We here at a Barefoot have discussed the pros and cons of the Hallmark gift-giving season and we came up with a few things. First of all, you should rent a summer house in Point Pleasant Beach and spend a little romantic time together. That would be nice, but if not, then this: Spent time is the best gift. Be present with each other. Carve out chunks of time when it’s just the two of you. And do things outside of your home/apartment/recreational vehicle. Explore something together. The third “to do” on our list is pretty important to us here at Barefoot. Listen and Laugh. Hear what you are saying to each other and feel comfortable enough to laugh when it’s funny. If you’re not laughing together…then you might want to spend Valentine’s Day beginning your search for next Valentine’s Day’s partner.
