One of my favorite seasons of the year is Summer. After surviving a long, cold winter which sometimes continues into June, the heat that we have seen lately is definitely welcome! 

Some of the things that I love about Summer are the sound of kids playing, going to the pool, smelling fresh flowers, and of course the unmistakeable smell of people grilling meat in the neighborhood.
