5 Things to Try Before Summer Ends

With summer dwindling down and fall about to swoop in (we can hardly believe it!) we rounded up a short list of a few things to do before Summer is over. 

1. Go to a local farmer's market and make a dinner using only things you bought from the market!

2. Go on a picnic at a park or the beach. Pack some treats, bubbly, an old blanket and just relax.

3. Make fruit pops.

4. Social Media Free day. Not that this is something you can only do in the summer, but it sure will help you relax on one of your last summer days! It really refreshes your mind and helps you focus on what is important. Life is too short to be glued to our phones!

5. Roast marshmellows. Because they just taste too good not to. (Or try this smores indoors recipe!)

6. Have an end-of-summer-bash and try out a new cocktail recipe.
