Summertime for many is a time of vacation, relaxation and lounging, and with the warmer season comes something I call “hammock fever.” Soon, you’ll see Instagram and Facebook photos of your friends lounging in these hanging beds; students even suspend these in the courtyards of their schools and it’s become an indoor lounging phenomenon.

Stephan SardoneBlog, ShowcaseLeave a Comment

The other day I heard something interesting about humankind: that we’re all just little historians. Meaning, we collect the past, even if it isn’t our past. We gather. We reminisce. We can’t help it.

As Mother’s Day rolls around, our minds drift to the ones we love who raised us, the women who have sacrificed time, money and sleep to make us happy and healthy individuals.
