Can you believe Memorial Day Weekend is almost here? It’s the unofficial start of summer, so why not make it a weekend to remember? Here are five great ideas for kicking off your summer full-speed ahead.
1. Head toward the water
Pools, beaches, and lakesides are open for business! What’s your favorite place for fun in the sun? This summer, be sure to stride out to the waterside in a swimsuit you love. If you are looking for plus-size women’s swimwear, check out our new line of GabiFresh swimwear, with bold colors and sexy designs.
Or if you prefer solids, try our Ashley Graham collection for sleek and trendy swimsuits. You will love the way you look for your first swim of the season! Want a more modest look? Don’t miss our line of one-pieces and tankinis. There’s something for everyone! Don’t be afraid to dive right in!
2. Get sporty
Channel your inner athlete and try a new water sport. Stand-up paddle boarding is becoming a popular summer pastime. It’s a fantastic way to see the waterways and enjoy an afternoon in nature. Tubing down a lazy river is perfect if you want a laid-back weekend. Or for more thrills, try towed tubing or water skiing. If you love water sports, be sure to check out our line of board shorts and sporty tees. You’ll look incredible!
3. Try a new barbecue recipe
Variety is the spice of life. If you are tired of the same old burgers and dogs on the grill, try something new this Memorial Day Weekend. Have you ever grilled veggies on a skewer? Or marinated chicken thighs and wings? They’re delicious! You can’t beat a savory barbecue sauce on chicken, cooked low and slow to perfection. Some people even make dessert on the outdoor grill. Grilled pineapple is a healthy dessert that tastes amazing!
4. Take in some outdoor music
Bring your summer alive with music. Many communities host free outdoor concerts on summer weekends. From pop, to jazz, to oldies, to children’s favorites, music has a way of bringing people together. So pack a picnic basket with your favorite red or white, and don’t forget a blanket. What better way to enjoy live entertainment on a warm summer evening?
5. Remember the reason
Memorial Day is dedicated to those who have sacrificed their lives for our country, as well as to all members of the military, past and present. Check your local community calendar to see what events are being held to honor service people in your area. You might find a parade or a special remembrance that you can attend to show your support.
Here’s wishing you a terrific weekend to kick off an even more fabulous summer. As Memorial Day gives way to the summer season, be sure to dive in, seize the day, and make memories to last a lifetime!
