Greetings, hi, hello.

Welcome to my site. This is where I showcase my work and write about this thing called life. Enjoy!

Summer to dos.

Summer to dos.

I don't know about you but this spring was a total bust. Between cold temps and even snow in April to what's looking like a full week of rain in May, there hasn't been a whole lot of time for outdoor activities. So with Memorial Day weekend right around the corner, I'm already thinking about summer and what I want to do and see. 

  1. BEACH - This is sort of a no-brainer given my proximity to the shore. Badges are $70 for the entire summer and the beach is a quick bike ride away.  
  2. Exploring - I keep a running list of places to check out and currently have my sights set here. It's a little outside my usual stomping grounds but a doable day trip. 
  3. BBQs - Also an obvious one. However, with our kitchen in total disarray and a rather soggy forecast, I'm looking forward to some backyard eats
  4. Weekend Trips - Jesse already planned a trip for our anniversary so I know we're out of town the end of June. Might try to squeeze in one more before summer's end. 
  5. Be Outside - This includes an outdoor happy hour with dogs, the county fair, a brewery on a farm, pick your own fields, weekly bonfires on the beach and more. 
  6. Get on the Water - Despite having a lake two houses away, we don't actually own kayaks or paddleboards. Maybe one of these days. Until then, I'm cool with renting
  7. Play Locally - My band played our second show last weekend and has another one scheduled for the end of June. Hoping to book one nearby. 
  8. Make It Work - In the immortal words of Tim Gunn. As someone who likes to keep a full book, I'm currently taking on new projects (plus pottery commissions). 
  9. Oysters & Cocktails - Did I mention I live near the beach? When I'm not working, I like to to feast on oysters and sip delicious adult beverages
  10. Stay Active - Beyond the gym, I'm hoping to get back into biking and running so I can soak up as much vitamin D as possible. While wearing sunblock, of course. 

Tell me about your summer plans. #sunglassesemoji
