Summer will forever be my favorite season of the year.
I can't say many of my winter nights were all that memorable, considering I spent most of them bundled up on the couch watching Netflix.
However, I'll never forget a single moment of the summers I spent chasing fireflies, roasting marshmallows, building sandcastles and soaking up the glorious golden rays of sun in my backyard.
I'm not sure what it is, but there is something quite magical about summertime.
With Memorial Day Weekend right around the corner, everyone's wanderlust is starting to kick in.
So, when it comes to having fun under the summer sun, you should pack a suitcase full of bikinis and go explore the world.
Let's face it, you should never settle for anything less than summer days filled with beaches, ice cream, tanlines and epic adventure.
