500 days of summer.

Who doesn't love summer? Here are 10 reasons to relish the season:

 1. The smell of fresh flowers and herb gardens. Nothing beats a fragrant breeze!

2. The heat. We consider warm weather to be a delicacy because we live in a
predominantly cool climate, so when the sun is shining, we are smiling!

3. Having picnics in the park.
Check out how to make this adorable picnic blanket here.

4. Beach days with friends.
(Not to mention an excuse to bust out our favorite vintage swimwear!)

 5. Going to drive-in diners for cold treats on hot days.

6. Wearing flowy skirts & cute cropped tops!

7. Drinking slurpees! Fun factoid-Did you know that Winnipeg is the slurpee capital of the world?!

9. BBQ'ing! 

10. The days are so long!
We love that feeling after a day at the pool, or the ride home from the beach when your feet are sandy and you can't stop smiling. All you want to do is rinse off the sand and do it all over again!
