Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds.

I don’t know about you but nothing gets me going on a hot summer day like big jar of frosty smoothie. To be honest nothing can beat the good old smoothie all year round but let's keep this post summer themed.
