Patio Drinks, Late Night Dinners, and Impromptu Bar-B-Ques. . . The Tastes of Summer
What would you like to remember from the summer of 2012? Or, more creatively, what would you or your grandkids find interesting as they leafed through a book you created years earlier documenting what you ate or with whom you spent your summer evenings of 2012?
One of our customers puts a California flag up on her gate on certain summer nights - a sign to stop in. The back patio is open. Sangria with summer fruits and sweet tea mojitos are set out. Each time they’ve gathered, she’s pulled out her phone to capture quick pictures of the friends and neighbors who have stopped by to visit. Now, her photos of friends, drinks and a lot of summer sunsets are documented in a “My Life” book, providing a history of how they dressed, what they ate and how the world looked in the summer of 2012 with friends and neighbors who were there to share those summer moments.
So pull out your phone at the farmer’s market. Take a photo sitting on the porch of a late dinner or an impromptu barbeque with friends. Document those sun kissed tomatoes from your garden. Capture someone you love with a piece of fresh cherry pie. Photograph all the things you love to eat and drink in the summer and the people you’re eating and drinking them with and transfer them to a book you can keep forever. Nothing is too small or trivial to document!
How about it? What’s in your cooler? What do you wait all year to eat or drink in the summer months? Tradition? Summer family recipe? Tell us what it is and we’ll send you a little something to help you document it.
