As much as we hate to think about it, summer is coming to an end. Make the most of the last few days of summer by immersing yourself in these simple and rewarding experiences.
HAVE A BONFIRE
There’s nothing better than staying out all night in the great outdoors with your closest vinas. Try to make it happen one last time before the summer heat is gone. Plus, there’s fewer bugs out in September!
Once summer’s over, the days begin to get shorter and not to mention, colder. So get out there and soak up as much sun as you can!
HIKE, HIKE, HIKE
Just do it! Whether you’re trekking on an intense trail or just walking through the hills, hikes are a relaxing yet challenging task. Bonus: you can also get a nice tan! Hiking is more fun to do with others though, so make sure to invite your vinas!
Pick some flowers and dry them between the pages of a heavy book. You’ll have some pretty reminders of those beautiful summer days. You can even frame them so you remember your summer memories on even the coldest days.
PAINT THE DAY AWAY
Go to a park, bring a bottle of wine, and just paint whatever appeals to you. It’s therapeutic, rewarding, and super fun. You also have a little piece of summer to keep with you until your next painting day.
Who doesn’t love a county fair! Complete with games, rides, carnival food, and entertainment! Grab your vinas and get going because these fairs won’t be around for long!
Another summer classic that you’ve probably forgotten you could even do – movie theater drive-ins! Watching a movie in the park with your girls, snacks, and warm blankets is something that never gets old. Find a theater near you and enjoy this old-fashioned form of entertainment.
Because once summer is done, there really isn’t an excuse to be outdoors all day anymore. Go have a picnic in the park, bike ride along the coast, or go the lake and catch the rays while you still can.
Come together and celebrate summers end by making a beautiful dinner using local and in-season ingredients. Invite your vinas over and reminisce on your summer fun.
The last few weeks of August don’t have to be a total bummer. Just get out there with some good company, and make the most out of what you have!
