Last summer felt like such a whirl-wind. What with Chet’s graduation, getting engaged, packing up my life in Lexington, and moving to Miami. While we still managed to squeeze in lots of fun it seemed to go by in a flash! This summer isn’t free from big changes/life events by any means(our wedding is SO SOON!), but I’m more than ready for the little moments, too. I want to slow down and enjoy my surroundings. To take full advantage of the extended daylight. And make memories to last a lifetime as I enter this next season of my life.
So, in honor of the first day of summer, I thought I’d jot down a few items for a seasonal bucket list…
Sample the fare from new-to-me restaurants like this one and this one.
Concoct a pitch perfect summer cocktail to enjoy while taking in the vibrant sunset skies on view from my balcony.
Rent one of those surrey bike contraptions and take it for a spin around Tropical Park.
Stick to a Sunday morning ritual of Farmer’s Market haulin’.
Find the perfect coffee shop to soak up free AC and Wi-Fi. Bonus points if they serve delicious cafe con leche and piping hot empanadas.
Take a road trip up the west coast of Florida, and stop to snap photos at whatever abandoned tourist attractions and motels that strike my fancy along the way.
Capsule my summer wardrobe.
Give our screened-in outdoor space a little design face-lift. Fairy lights! More potted plants! Wind chimes!!! The possibilities are endless.
Experience a quiet moment of reflection, and check out the giant Buddha statue, at the Wat Buddharangsi Buddhist Temple.
Challenge myself to reach a new fitness goal. Think: mileage, daily yoga challenge/achieve a pose I have yet to master, or a new-to-me form of exercise.
Three words: SWIM UP BAR.
Spend a few evenings playing disc golf, once I learn how to actually play of course.
Add more books to my spreadsheet, like this one and this one and this one looks good too!
Go on a middle-of-the-day adventure to track down lunch from an obscure and tasty food truck.
