your happy summer playlist

I remember the summer days when school was out and my best friend Mimi and I would lay out by her pool listening to the radio and loving it when the DJ reminded us to turn so we didn't burn. Those days were filled with sessions of Marco Polo, talks about boys and the scent of Coppertone. Even now when I hear "The Boys of Summer" I am right back to the happy place when life was as complicated as which bikini to wear and iced tea or lemonade before another swim.

Today is the Summer Solstice so, download this playlist from iTunes then go dance in the sun as bare as you dare.
