Last winter, before leaving for a trip to warmer climates, I went shopping for a new bathing suit. I headed straight for the racks that held one-pieces in all colors (mainly black—it's slimming, after all). My husband good-naturedly tried to convince me to buy a bikini. You've got to be kidding, I said. (Was he suffering from a love-is-blind moment?)

I love summer for a number of reasons, the most obvious one being, IT'S SUMMER! The season conjures up so many wonderful memories, and since I grew up very close to the Atlantic Ocean, many of these involve the beach, a place that still calls and comforts me.

Summer is a celebration for many. Something about the way the North Pole is at its maximum tilt toward the sun, allowing the sun to reach its highest point in the sky for the year, which allows more light to reach our planet, making many of us feel festive, alive, hopeful and happy.
