Everyone has that one person they want to spend the most time with: their crush, their significant other, or maybe just someone you have a lot of fun with. Whichever person you choose to spend time with this summer, you guys probably need some help deciding what would be super fun and make for a great day. Here are some of my top picks for Summer Dates:

1. Picnics

What better "outdoor dinner" is there other than a picnic? Picnics seem a bit cliche;however, sharing a picnic with someone you enjoy being around really could be a great experience. I mean who doesn't love the sun hitting their skin while they have a big sandwich in their hand?

2. Trips to the Lake

One of my favorite places to be at is at the lake. A day on the lake just gives you a good feeling. A feeling that you can't get from a day at the pool or even on the beach. Being at the lake with you significant other, well it can't get much better than that.

3. Go to a Drive-In Movie

Drive-in movie theaters remind me of my childhood. My family and I used to go to the local Drive-in theater and watch our favorite features. Going to the Drive-in is different from going to the movie theater because you're outside under the stars watch a flick with one of your favorite people in the world.

4. Take a Trip to the Baseball Game

Going to a baseball game is always a great date idea, because baseball games are fun whether your team wins or loses. If you do go to the game, you have to take a picture together. If you don't take a picture together did you actually even go?

5. Fishing

Who doesn't love to get their feet in the water, grab a fishing pole, and catch a huge bass? Fishing is a great date idea because you can spend a lot of time together, and you guys can talk as you fish. It's also fun to have a little friendly competition.

6. Kayaking

"Couple who workout together stay together" and kayaking is quite the workout. Kayaking can be lots of fun because you can be out in the middle of a lake or ocean and nothing be around you except the one person you want to be there with you. Kayaking also opens the door to observe the beautiful scenery around you.

7. Go on a Hike

Hiking is a great way to just get outdoors and explore. Even though the hike itself might be difficult the ending product is worth it. The view will be outstanding, but sharing the view with your date is extraordinary.

8. Outdoor Concerts

Everyone loves a good concert, but during the summer time when the sun goes down the party gets started up. Outdoor concerts can be super exciting, and what better person to spend it with than your crush?

Don't let this summer fly by without spending time with your crush, and going on great dates with them that only the summer time can provide. Live for this summer, because you never know what next summer will hold.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.


7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Newsflash! It's Time For Everybody To Love Everybody

Come on, people, get it together.

I, personally, think it's time for everybody to just start loving each other. Now listen, this doesn't mean you need to actually love everyone, but at least accept them. Acceptance is the closest thing we are gonna get to loving each other.

Let me tell you a little something: politics at the moment are very messy. No matter which side it is, it's messy. There is no denying that. If you try to deny that, then good for you, you're not helping anybody. If you really want some change, you need to start being the bigger person. Change isn't about who can yell about something louder or who has the "better" argument, it's about being respectful.

Just because someone has an opposing view does not mean you need to yell at them. Does yelling solve anything ever? Maybe temporarily, like for 2 minutes, but that's about as long as you're gonna get. There's absolutely no need to indirectly say something about certain individuals on social media. Yes, there is freedom of speech, but everybody should keep in mind why they have that right and why they still have it.

I do not understand why it is so hard to be respectful of one another. If someone goes after another person talking about how absolutely terrible it is of them thinking something should be illegal, the person who's being yelled at should respectfully ignore the other individual's disrespectful remarks. If the individual does not stop, then they are not aware that they are making no difference in the world.

What I'm trying to get at here is that in order to love each other, we really need to accept all our differences. If we really want change we need to go right to the sources, not just yell at each other from across the street. If everyone learned to accept each other, life would be a whole lot easier. Is this ever going to happen? Of course not. This is the solution though, whether you think so or not.
