.Summer Relaxation.

Have you been feeling like the little bit of summer that we get each year, especially here in Canada, is quickly slipping on by and you just haven't been able to enjoy any of it? 
Ya, me too {it's almost the end of June?!?!}
Then I came across this article over at Martha {we're on first name basis', sort of like BFF's} that gives 60 Unique ways to relax and have some fun this summer.
I took my favorite 30 and put them here for you to enjoy also.
