Vim + Verve: Guest Post

Guest posting today is Hollin from Vim and Verve!

"One of my favorite things to do when it starts getting warm is going out on picnics.  Montreal has great parks and the greatest park, Parc La Fontaine is right down the street.  Some people like to build extravagant picnics but me, I like them fairly simple. I try to remember that, unless you have a car and you park close to your picnic spot, you'll be carrying a lot of these items, so try to pack light! Etsy sellers and other shops like World Market sell great disposable or wood picnic packaging to make your food all the easier to carry."

Hope you are inspired to create a picnic of your own this spring and/or summer. What better way to enjoy the lovely outdoors, weather, blooming flowers and green everywhere, than eating outside with friends or a loved one.
