summer to do list 2

I always have really high expectations for the summer months – and they’re always at least mostly met. Last summer, though, was probably my favorite to date (with the 2 week trip overseas), which makes it pretty hard to top. So, since June is here and the start of summer is right around the corner, I came up with a little list of things I hope to do this summer – some chores I’ve been avoiding, others are more fun – to make sure that I get the most out of the season.

1. Read 15 books.(read 10) 2. Binge watch a new series.(Game of Thrones!) 3. Clean and organize my office. (finally did this!) 4. Start meditating. (it’s not yet a habit, but I’m getting better at it) 5. Actually start a little scrapbook-journal-photo album. (nope) 6. Gather inspiration in one place. (how is it that I couldn’t do the easiest ones?!) 7. Exercise at least 3 times a week. (I got up to 4-5 times a week!) 8. Find an awesome new dessert to make. (coconut cornmeal cake – recipe here9. See a play and go somewhere for live music. (saw two Shakespeare plays and went to a small picnic + concert while on vacation) 10. Learn conversational Swedish. (well, I knew I wouldn’t be as far along as I’d like, but I’m getting better! still trying to make studying a daily habit)
