For a MUCH-needed weekend of sleeping in, swimming, sun worshipping, hiking, and a healthy doses of wine and good company with my parents, aunt & uncle.

Luckily for me this Summer also included a group camping trip in Northern California – Complete w/ camouflage & bear sightings. I’m serious about both!

We all have different ways of keeping ourselves grounded and relaxed, whether its slapping at mosquito bites and making toasts with family & friends or escaping to the beach for a weekend of yoga and meditation.

What’s your fool-proof way to wind down during the Summer months?
