Summer Suggestions

During the Summers I always find things to obsess over while I go through my days. Here's a list of suggestions (and things I'm loving right now) that you should try to do during this Summer:

  • Read The Hobbit
  • Go to the drive-in
  • Go eat at an outdoor burger place
  • Eat fresh strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, tomatoes, squash, potatoes, peppers...anything fresh: eat it.
  • Watch The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
  • Go to the fair
  • Volunteer at your church's VBS
  • Have a picnic
  • Go to your local farmer's market every week
  • Have a movie night/grill out night with friends
  • Plant flowers and herbs on your front porch
  • Sew something
  • Go running in the early morning...there's nothing like the foggy, pale and slightly cool mornings of Summer, and if you're into exercising, this will be the only time of day it's bearable to be outside.
  • Go canoeing, hiking, camping, etc.
  • Watch baseball
  • Go to the dog park
  • Plant a garden
  • Cook fresh and healthy meals each night
  • Get ice cream
  • Star gaze 
  • Take pictures throughout the summer with a disposable camera--a lost art! 
  • Go antiquing
  • Spend a day at the lake swimming & tubing

These are a few of the things I've had the pleasure of doing this Summer and I've loved the memories I've made from each of them.
