The heat is finally here, but that kind of Summer are we having? The world is slowly and cautiously opening back up and I can hear the whisper of freedom floating on the breeze. Full on travel seems lofty and festivals seem like a distant dream, but friends and family seem accessible. The vibe I’m getting is local road trips and chill friend hangs. I’m feeling low-key 70’s Summer. A real bikes on the front lawn, fire pits, rock n’ roll, windows down, road trips to small towns with great ice cream shops kind of Summer. It’s giant pickles and rose coloured glasses. It’s a cotton candy Summer baby!
I love when a movie or show really sets the mood for the season, so here are my picks for Summer 2021!
