When I was growing up, the summers in Chicago could be blazing hot and filled with silly amounts of humidity.
But there was always something to look forward to.
1) The way the field near our apartment smelled, due to the wild chamomile that grew there.
2) The sun stayed out longer than usual, so that I could ride my bike to new adventures later into the day.
However you celebrate your longer days or style your summer home, I hope it's with ways that make you remember the season.
