read it: summertime

what’s better than a book about our favorite season?!

by jamie wilson

Summer is magical. The sun shines brighter, the night's are wilder and anything's possible. It's the ultimate season! It doesn't seem possible to capture all of its goodness in one place, but then I opened Joanne Dugan's book, Summertime

The perfect coffee table read, Summertime boasts more than 80 photos from various photographers intermingled with quotes evoking the very soul of this season. Dreamy seascapes, children playing outside until dusk, and sun bursts against the bluest skies speak to the Florida girl in me. 

So, in honor of Memorial Day and taking a mental break from this gloomy weather, escape to a place of sun-kissed skin and beautifully wind-swept hair all day long with Summertime
