Summer To Do

First and foremost, happy first day of summer! (Did you know -The summer solstice is actually the longest day of the year.) It's crazy to think that it's now summer given Alabama has endured 90 degree temperatures for weeks.

Now, cut to the chase.

Nothing gives me joy like making a to-do list. Current lists I have in my life: Movies to Watch, Restaurants to Enjoy, Magazines I Currently Receive (with expiration date noted), Daily Work To-Do List....the list could go on and on. Each summer, David and I are met with small regrets about what we didn't do. To rid our lives of regret, I decided to make a list! Brilliant.

Here's the summer to-do list. It will also be a separate page link at the top of my blog so I can hold myself publicly accountable. Just to be exact, I'm defining "summer" by the official calendar dates - June 21 - September 22. Let the countdown begin.

This list is wonderful! Summer is such a lazy time so I ususally forget to do what I set out to do and lists are the one thing that keeps me on track.
