June 6, 2017


Longer days, warmer weather, and countless barbecues are just a few of the reasons why everyone loves summer. We asked our milk + honey team to share with us their favorite things to do when the temperature heats up.


“I love spending so much time outside. It’s the best time to get some Vitamin D and a little summer glow.” – Jess, 2nd Street District concierge



“The best part about this season has to be the colors. I love how vibrant the flowers seem and how gorgeous they look.” – Elise, River Oaks concierge

“As a University of Texas student, summer is all about relaxing and recharging my battery for the upcoming semester. I enjoy using that extra hour that I’d usually spend studying to get a facial, sip tasty margaritas by the pool, or go to an extra yoga class.” – Ashely F., Procurement admin. assistant



This summer is all about feeling good and spending time with the people that I love. As such, I’ve been spending time enjoying fun workout classes on ClassPass and trying new things with my girls!” – Summer,  Managing Director of Operations


“My go-to spot this summer is Barton Springs. I recently just discovered that I can take my favorite pool float, so now I’m having float parties with my friends. – Kristen, concierge


“One of my favorite things to do during the summer is floating down the river. Whenever I have the opportunity, I love sitting in my inner-tube and relaxing as the rapids carry me downstream!” – Adri, Arboretum Market Manager


“To me, summer is all about spending time with my family. During a sweltering day, we keep cool by visiting Museum of Fine Arts. It’s a great way for us to all spend time together and explore all of the spectacular pieces of artwork.” –  Grace, River Oaks concierge


“The best part about summer has to be the longer days. I just love being able to get out of work and still see the sun shining. I’m also obsessed with all of the cute sundresses that are available right now!” – Angela, Human Resources Assistant
