Sometimes life needs to be slowed down. It needs to be savored, set upon a blanket, windtossed and wild. Which is why picnics are so nice. There’s something about sitting in nature, eating a sandwich that reminds you what life is about. Rather than pulling together the same-old, same-old wicker basket of  the usual plates and eats, here are 7 picnics to inspire and delight you. Isn’t it time you sat on grass and sucked in the summer air?
