Inspired by lazy beachside hangs, sunny farmers markets, and lots of travel near or far. Summer is about exploring, slowing down, and soaking up good times with friends, family, and new faces.
With Midwest in my bones, summer lake days were the highlight. Now in California, summer beach days are up the coast on the Pacific, where the afternoons are hot and the nights cool down, sea salt in the air and sun on the waves. Summer is watching the local crowd paddle out for long, easy waves. Small, secret beaches where dogs and kids run around in the surf.
Summer is magic. Slow down and enjoy it. Here are a few things we bring on our summer adventures, from city park days to weekend lake trips.
