“March Madness” – that time of year we start planning summer vacations… around pools, lakes and oceans… in bathing suits, shorts and tank tops. For many of us, the prospect of summer has been far from “carefree.” This year could be the year you actually look forward to summer – and enjoy its sweet pleasures on your own terms. Here are few good ideas to get you started. Yes, March Madness means NCAA basketball to some people; but to most of us it also means getting outdoors again (yay)! All that extra daylight gives us freedom to walk our dogs, hike our hikes, stroll our beaches, and soak up sunshine. Spring brings a bounty of summer fruits and veggies too – so three cheers for la dolce vita!
