Summer Pleasures

I LOVE summer. And this year I feel especially lucky because I get to enjoy more time with my family. Here are some of the simple things that make summer so special to me:

Watermelon (the perfect summer fruit!)
Iced coffee (Yes, I enjoy this a bit too much...)
Mini ice cream sandwiches
Fun in the pool and at the beach
Exercising outdoors
Many opportunities to wear cool sunglasses and hats
Lots of fresh veggies
It's "natural" to eat salads
Heirloom tomatoes

Question: What do you like most about summer? Yes, I am making the assumption that you like summer... :o)

Be well,
