    On the summer holidays (specifically 4th of July) we go to the beach to watch the fire works. I love it!


  4. I follow your blog with GFC as Amber and I love the summer holidays because I get more sleep and I get to spend more time cooking with my mom and with my family in general!

    My favorite thing about summer would have to be making s'mores. The gooey marshmallow, the melty chocolate....

    what i adore most about summer holidays would have to be everyone gathering in parks and backyards for the fourth of July and such. everyone's happy to be there, there's wonderful barbecues and cold drinks, and fold out chairs everywhere. then everyone sits and watches the wonderful light show in the sky :)

  7. Following publicly via GFC. :)
    What I *love* most about summer holidays is the chance to relax & literally just lie in the sunshine, preferably on a beach or a hammock. :)
    Thanks for the giveaway & I hope you're having a great summer!
