What have you been up to this summer? Have you gone to the beach? Visited a farmer’s market? Gotten through any summer reads? Met new friends? Spent time with old ones? Gone camping? Tried out new recipes on the grill? Attended a baseball game?

To me, it’s not summer until I’ve spent a solid chunk of days outside–whether that’s by the pool, hiking a trail, eating Sunday brunch on the patio or taking an evening stroll. Beaming sun, a green landscape, piercing blue skies and the thick sound of crickets at night are all inextricably linked to the season, and it wouldn’t be summer for me if I didn’t get a chance to spend all my weekends in the great outdoors.

So, let us know: What feels like summer to you? Are you ready for fresh fall weather or loving the heat?
