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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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
