Happy World Sauntering Day!  What is World Sauntering Day?!?!?  Well… it is an annual holiday celebrated on the 19th of June each year. It begun at the Grand Hotel (Mackinac Island) in Michigan during the 1970s. Here guests can stroll the world’s largest porch.

The purpose behind this day is to remind us to take it easy, smell the roses, to slow down and enjoy life as opposed to rushing through it.  To saunter is to walk slowly, preferably with a joyful outlook.
