The summer air has finally arrived! Many of us have been anxiously awaiting that warm touch on our skin and the fresh breeze in our hair. I can see you all now, taking your road trips with your family and friends, commuting with more ease and relaxation with the windows rolled down to catch the rays of light between working hours.
