With the unofficial start of summer approaching us this Memorial Day weekend  I thought I would post some beach staples, rather then my usual weekend links. I welcome languid lazy afternoons in the hammock, followed by a tall glass of ice tea loaded up with mint from the garden, ice cream for dinner, and bare feet. June 1 is my birthday and all I want is a beach day. Here’s what I did last year on my birthday, It will be hard to beat. I’ve already planned a few trips to the beach this summer, and couldn’t be happier. What are your go-to beach items? Also, just a side note, Goggle reader will be extinct shortly, so if you are following me on blogger, make sure to switch over with Bloglovin .Have a fun Memorial day weekend! xo-kate
