Well, it's already July 22nd and I feel like summer days are slipping past. There are always so many visions I have of how I'll spend my summer. But it seems in Michigan the summer is over in a blink of an eye and I have not had the chance to really enjoy it.
So far, I have been able to spend some time at the in-laws cottage, visit Cincinnati, go sailing, and walk the lighthouse pier at our beach, walk downtown during street performer night, see an outdoor concert at Frederik Meijer Gardens, and make strawberry jam. I made it out to my parent's house, but only once. We've started our patio, but not quite finished it.
By the end of the summer, I am making a promise to myself to spend an afternoon at the beach, walk downtown with Brian for a weeknight dinner somewhere with outdoor seating, see a free concert in the park, spin some yarn outdoors under the shade tree, and invite our neighbors over for dinner on our finished patio (hence we have to finish the patio!) We are going camping for a full week coming up, so I know I'll feel like I've appreciated the summer a bit more once I get back from that trip.
Anyone else with summer dreams?
