The best way to celebrate summer is by having a picnic. The act of eating outside drenched in sunlight, surrounded by grass, birds, bees, and tall trees, is a way to say, thank you to yourself for surviving those cold winter months spent inside eating hot food. Finally, in the summer sun you can dice up some fruit and veggies, pack a cooler full of icy beverages and treats, and relax outside on a lawn chair or blanket while soaking up that sweet, sweet vitamin D with your family or friends.
