Summer Done Right
posted in: Personal

As a nod to the purpose of this blog and a way to unite with others in the blog world (check out cornflake dreams), I have developed a Summer Bucket List.

If you’ve been visiting this site for awhile, you are well aware of My 101 List.  But I think breaking it down to this summer will give me a narrower snapshot of what I would like to accomplish during these sweltering days to come. Here it goes…

Super Summer Bucket List

  1. Read all the Harry Potter books before the last movie is in theaters (3 1/2 of 7 down).
  2. Girly trip to NYC.  First time to New York!
  3. Go see a lighthouse.
  4. Move into our new rental house!
  5. Find a job… wa wa
  6. Make an icecream cake.
  7. Go berry picking.
  8. Visit a vineyard.
  9. Go through Rosetta Stone for German
  10. Make my own jam.
  11. Volunteer at a community garden.
  12. Start the Apprentice Series with a small group.
  13. Bike, bike, bike!
  14. Have an awesome birthday!!!
  15. Read through my Food Photography book.
  16. Get a new lens for my camera (?) birthday present… wink, wink
  17. Go to as many Durham Bulls baseball games as possible

I so easily flow along with life’s path without even realizing I have hardly lived. Not anymore ladies and gents! Not anymore!

This summer is full of exciting prospects, and I intend on being intentionally aware of every activity and moment I find myself in.  I can’t wait to share with you all of my adventures and recipes and hopefully inspire you to do the same!
