Hello, sweet summertime! No matter how much we complain about the heat, the summer does make us happy. There’s something special about basking in the merciless heat wave and at the end of the day, just diving into the sparkling water of a pool. Or maybe just relaxing at the beach with ice cold beers for company, as the balmy summer breeze caresses us. Add some summery tunes to it, and voila! we have the perfect summer day.
