We’re past Memorial Day weekend, school is out next week, and summer is upon us. While that doesn’t really change the day to day activities in our household, there is just something more fun about the summertime.

I am constantly getting grief for not “resting enough” on the weekends and being “on the go” too much (ahem, Michael), so my goal for this summer is to be noncommittal. We’ve had a busy spring, so I’m looking forward to not feeling like I HAVE to be a certain place at a certain time. With that being said, I’ll be cutting back on blog posts just a bit this summer. While we’re off being noncommittal in our personal lives, my work life is going to be super busy. Between taking a class and teaching a class, any spare moment I get will intentionally be spent enjoying summer with friends and family. I’ll be back to blogging in full force in the fall and already have a lot of fun post ideas in my head.

Here are a few things that I am going to make a point to do this summer:

Play in the water. Swimming, splash pad, baby pool, all of the above.
Go to the beach. Even if we go just once, I’ll be happy.
Go to a Rays baseball game.
Go out for ice cream. Not just frozen yogurt, but ice cream.
Watch fireworks.
Drinks beer on the patio and listen to country music after bedtime.
Train for and run my first 10K in August. Crazy? Maybe, but I’m looking forward to it.


And because I can’t think of summer without thinking of that adorable little snowman:


What are you looking forward to this summer?
