a post pertaining to picnics and a playlist

I love picnics. A whole lot. I like being outside, sitting on a blanket and enjoying a meal with the best scenery that no restaurant could ever have (except maybe somewhere in Hawaii…). And if you get to enjoy it with someone special, well that makes it all the better.

Almost anything can have a soundtrack I believe. Does this include picnics? Of course. I most recently semi went on an excellent one and because I felt inspired to do so, here’s my picnic playlist for my most recent picnic.
