LIVING

Entertaining

Many fun pastimes come to mind when people conjure up summer in their minds. Even though July and August are not an automatic break for most of us by the time we hit adulthood, there's still something about the extra hours of daylight that make weekday evenings and all day on the weekends awesome anyway! Whether it's gardening, entertaining friends on the backyard deck, enjoying leftovers and homemade sparkling drinks, joining a softball league, or naturally capturing photos of the whole season, even soaking up the warm weather at home feels a little vacation-y. And if you can apply all of these activities to a cottage every now and again? Even better! Whether you're baking cookies, or making homemade hot chocolate (perhaps after an hour or two of skating), you can create some precious memories together.
