I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE SUMMER! My husband and I live in Florida, so it’s summer all year round; but there are a few traditions we keep just for the actual summer months and here they are! 

  1. Picnics! Find a local park and pack-in a lunch. If you are in the Orlando area > check out Kissimmee Lake Front Park. Newly remolded we love strolling the lakefront at night!
  2. Kite Flying! (When it’s not raining). While you are at Kissimmee Lake Front Park 😏
  3. Hiking but only short trips, since the weather can be too hot! Here are a few of my favorite short trails!
  4. Garden Festivals. Check out my Leu Gardens article here!
