“Back-to-school sales start earlier and earlier every year,” my friend said last month, thumbing through a Target ad on her iPhone.

“Why did my 10-day Maui vacation fly by while that February trek to Nebraska to visit my in-laws feel like an eternity?” a friend asked recently. I know the feeling. Summer goes by way too quickly, and if you don’t book travel early, August will rear its head before you know it. People tell me […]
