"To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug." -Helen Keller
Keep it simple. A blanket, projector and a backyard make the perfect backyard movie theater. Invite over some friends or have a simple date night for two.
Eat outside. Move your dining room table outside. Or a get a permanent one to enjoy all summer long.
Savor the cold stuff. Take advantage of the ice cream man and snow cone hut. They'll be gone before you know it.
Go local. Visit your local farmers market for the freshest produce and blooms.

Splash. Whether it's at a pool, lake or beach, jump in and make a splash.
Hit the road. Not all vacations require passports or even plane tickets. Take a road trip to some new place.
Pack a lunch. Enjoy lunch "out" at your favorite park.
