Summertime is for Picnics
Now that it’s FINALLY relatively warm in New England, Pete and I have been out of the house as much as possible. After living in Florida for 2 and a half years, I had completely forgotten how long winters last in the northeast. May in Florida? Everyone is hot and sweaty and fighting over who gets to stand in front of the a/c. May in the Northeast? It’s still in the 50s and 60s, and you can see a few adamant teenage girls still wearing furry boots. I definitely had a tough time getting used to the cold Northeast winters again!
Thank goodness it’s June and I can finally wear a sundress, pack a picnic, and head outside.
Even when Pete and I don’t feel like planning a trip and driving somewhere, we’ll just pack a little lunch, head to the beach that’s five minutes from our house, and read. It may be low-key, but something about packing up a picnic and being outside relaxing together still feels plenty special! If you haven’t gone for a picnic recently, here’s a little inspiration. These are my top 10 favorite foods to pack into my picnic basket:
