101 Ways to Embrace Summer

summer list
source: whatever.

Summertime is here! Many kids are already out of school while others are counting down the last days, and the blogosphere and Pinterest (my newest addiction!) are buzzing with summer activities, foods and ideas for embracing summer.

I’ve compiled a list of 101 of my favorite ideas here to inspire you to make this summer a memorable one.

However, the danger of the blogosphere is feeling like you need to do every good idea you come across, and I hope this list doesn’t make you feel that way. Rather than trying to do everything halfheartedly, pick your favorites and  make the most of them!
