I cannot remember a time when I didn’t love picnics.
To those who don’t know, picnics are defined as “an outing or occasion that involves taking a packed meal to be eaten outdoors.”
Usually there is a social occasion involved in picnics with people getting to know each other, laugh together and every once in a while creating something together. No wonder I love them!
Today I fell in love with collecting vintage picnic images.
And naturally, there was the play I was in with the name Picnic where I got to portray one of my favorite characters ever. The image here is Rosalind Russell playing Rosemary Sidney. Unfortunately few photos remain of my stage tenure as Rosemary - it was before digital cameras were as common as they are now.
Forever and hopefully forever in the future, people have enjoyed going outdoors and celebrating life with food and festivities, making memories and colorful recipes.
When will you take your next picnic?
This blog post was inspired by the SITSgirls Stop the Summer Slump challenge. We are celebrating International Picnic Day!
