Laid back summers with Lauren Hammond, and a giveaway!

Give a warm standing ovation for Lauren Hammond! *claps*

She is the author of the very popular Love Sucks and now of a FABULOUS book called Famished. Which, you lucky people you, she brought a copy of along to give away! lucky.

Anyway I asked Lauren to share with us a little bit about her summertime traditions, and this is what she sent me. Enjoy, and don't forget to enter the giveaway below!

To me, the summertime is a calm laid back time of year where I get to do my favorite things, relax and spend time with my family.

I'm a family person and with the busy college schedules, high school, and some that live out of town, I rarely see them during the fall, winter, and spring...

Every Summer, a couple weekends a month. My whole family (I'm talking whole family aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) and I go to my grandparents camper at Geneva On The Lake, a little tourist spot in Northeast Ohio.

We cook out, swim, visit some wineries, and walk the strip.

We've been going there since I was ten years old.

I don't just have one memory of the time I've spent up there during the summers, I have hundreds and I feel like It's something I'll always look back on and smile about as I get older.

I'm twenty-seven now, and I hope that I'll still be going up there during the summers, with my family, (and my own kids someday) for another twenty-seven years.

Family doesn't last forever and what's most important to me is the time I spend with them now, while I can.

Yay! I hope everyone enjoys what's left of summer!
