Ah, summer is here in full swing and we all have our list of things we absolutely must do before Labor Day. How sweet it is. Here’s hoping that we all get to each and every one of them and enjoy every minute of that quest.

  1. Hammock napping
  2. Picnicking in the park
  3. Stargazing (Organic wine optional)
  4. Reading a book
  5. Kayaking
  6. Taking a bike ride
  7. Walking on the beach or a wooded trail
