Things I Am Excited About For This Summer

Happy Summer, Y’all! I enjoyed a beautiful start to summer yesterday, with a sunny day in the high 70s. I work until 9pm on Wednesdays – which can be hard when the weather is beautiful – but I don’t mind as much when I get to enjoy my evening break outside. Now that we’ve celebrated our wedding and are getting settled into our apartment, I am so excited for summer! What better way to officially kick off summer than sharing what I am most excited about for this season? Enjoy!

— Taking college coursework again: I start coursework a week from today toward a degree in graphic design! I’ve been out of school since December 2014, so I’m excited to continue learning!

— Reading Cultivate: My sweet friend Lara launches her newest book next week and it’s sure to be filled with words of wisdom and truth!

— Decorating our home: Especially bringing home our dining room table! We are grateful beyond measure with the wedding gifts we received. I’m especially looking forward to putting them to good use in our home.

— Investing in friendships: After months of being particularly busy, friendships are a priority for us both together and individually.

— Trips to the farmstand: There’s nothing like purchasing fresh corn on the cob from a local farm.

— Weekend Adventures: We used to take adventures every weekend when we started dating. We haven’t had much margin time to do this over the past couple months, so I’m eager to continue our tradition!

— Strawberry picking: Dillon loves fresh fruit. This will be a fun weekend day date that’s sure to yield yummy treats afterward!

— Visiting Martha’s Vineyard: I’ve never been to Cape Cod or Martha’s Vineyard before, but we found a fun little hotel that I’d really like to try! I’m hopeful that we will be able to make a weekend out of it this summer.

— Writing on my blog: Wedding planning took precedence over blogging for almost all of springtime. I am so thankful to have time to pour into this space again and share our adventures as a newlywed couple!

What are you most excited for this summer? Share what you’re looking forward to below!

    This looks like such a fun summer! Weekend adventures seem like such a great way to plan intentional time away with your new husband! I can’t wait for Cultivate, either! 🙂

    Oh my goodness, I’m going to need ALL the details on if y’all go to Martha’s Vineyard! We have a couple of more trips to the Silos on the horizon this summer otherwise it’ll be full of homemade ice cream and adventuring with our pups 🙂
