Last year at this time, I wrote about some easy ways to celebrate the Summer Solstice, or the first official day of summer (June 21). It is also known as the “longest” day of the year because it has the greatest number of daylight hours than any other day of the year.
As I wrote then, for me, summer is all about the food, or, specifically, about the fresh produce of the season including watermelon, corn, tomatoes, strawberries, and peaches, plums and nectarines.
But, summer offers more than just great food. The longer days and warmer weather seem to make it mandatory to spend time outdoors. Here are some more simple ways to connect to the slower rhythm of summer and enjoy the season.
