Too often in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we don’t take the time to slow down and appreciate our surroundings. A picnic is the perfect way to do this. It reminds you to disconnect from worries, enjoy the company and food, and let some feel-good Vitamin D from the sun pump through your blood. Something about sitting on the grass on one of those checkered tablecloths with a little wicker basket full of goodies makes lunch so much more relaxing. It could be the fact that there’s two feet of snow outside of my window, but this collection of picnic photos really made me long for a warm, sunny day. I invite you to forgo lunch at your desk next week and take the extra time for a picnic- even if it has to be indoors- because as Outkast says, “You can plan a pretty picnic, but you can’t predict the weather.”
