What is it about summer that makes you want to kick off your shoes, sit in the swing on the back porch or just lie in the hammock watching the fireflies dance on the backdrop of the star-studded night? I won’t deny that any of these things is so appealing at this time of year, I’m reminded of how much more enjoyable things can be when you don’t have a looming to-do list.
