Summer List.

Hiya there!! Well it is that time again…summer LIST time! And since the summer solstice is just around the corner I thought I’d discuss the things I’m loving right now going on into this lovely season. Something tells me this is going to be a good one, filled with great friends – pool parties and good vibes overall…I’m all about it.

Things I will be…

Eating: all about the fresh salads…anything cold and easy to throw together. I love all things cucumbers and tomatoes still. This without a doubt is my fave cucumbers/tomato mix. And feta. Yes feta for the win. And then of course there is ice cold WATERMELON. Can you think of anything better to eat after a HOT run? I seriously cannot.

Drinking: all of the cold brew and iced coffees there are available. A crisp dry rosé. Fruit infused water.

Practicing: Being in the moment. Always.

Mastering: The art of relaxation. Of letting go. Totally decompressing from a long busy day with back to back commitments. Coming home and just unwinding and loving this season that I’m in.

Learning: It’s okay to flat out say no (to friends, people you love, obligations whatever) if you’re not feeling it and not feel bad about it. My mother grew up a devout Catholic so some of that rubbed off on me – and the guilt thing is something that has taken me years to overcome.

Trying: A sport that I see myself as not being really that good at – like beach VOLLEYBALL!! Haha…I’m going to get good at it y’all. Mark my words.

Playing: With more of my fun running friends!! Off and on the roads or the trails.

Finishing: Decorating my apartment. I’m feeling like the Moroccan look needs to happen. I’m going to start with new couch pillows I think.

Reading: “Mind Gym”. I’ve actually been meaning to read that book for a while. I need some good runner/mental reads to get my mind right for this marathon in September.

Remembering: To do my planks. I did a plank challenge back in the day. I might have to start that back up just for fun.

Wearing: ROMPERS all day. I keep finding good ones on Pinterest.

Cooking: on the grill. I’ve been meaning to do some salmon on the grill actually. With lots of lemon.

Working: On revamping the blog a bit. I feel like the design needs a refresh for sure.

Traveling: and running in some unseen (to me) places. Exploring more of the world around me on foot.

Wanting: Lots of sunshine…I am going to spend about 99.9 percent of my time outdoors this summer for sure. Sunscreen me down baby.

What is on your summer list?!

  1. I just found out that I’ve developed an allergy to watermelon. CRIES!!!! How awful is that?! I mean, that’s a like a staple food here in the south! There’s nothing better than ice cold watermelon on a hot day! I’ll just have to look on with envy.

    I love the idea of a summer list. I think I’m going to put one together myself and stick it to the fridge to remind me to do things other than lay in the hammock! haha!
