When I think of summer, the beach and beautiful weather come to mind. Picnics in the park, vacations with friends and family, and of course camping. I'm a big fan of s'mores, not as much as our editor Melissa though. The feeling of sitting by the fire and crisping my marshmallows on a stick really reminds me it's summer.
