Remember when summers were filled with simple pleasures? Days were long and languid, filled with treats made by your grandmother. The only relief from the heat in the kitchen was to go outside and stand under the hose. We drank real cokes from glass bottles and chased lightning bugs through the yard. We ate popsicles on the porch and laughed when our tongues turned bright orange and purple. Those are the kind of summers we want to hold onto to or at least try to recreate ourselves. So this summer we will spend more time at home, creating memories, sharing recipes (making an apple pie from scratch), and letting time slip slowly by. What are some of your favorite and simple ways to enjoy summer at home?
