This weekend marked the first official day of summer (although the 90-degree weather we’ve been having since May surely constitutes the season’s start), which is undoubtedly the best season of them all. As much as I love crisp fall and snowy winter, and even rainy spring, summer is when you get to relax, spend the most time outside and (if you’re lucky) take a relaxing vacation, allowing you to get a bit of a tan and unwind.
What signifies summer to me even further is July 4th. Every year I attend a pool party hosted by a friend and have the chance to spend time relaxing and just enjoying summer. (It doesn’t hurt that it will be a long weekend, too!) Whether you’re spending your Independence Day by a pool, or cooking out by the grill, you want to make sure you show your stripes and stick to the classic red, white and blue.
