My Summer “To-Do” List:

  • Watch a sunset
  • Treat yourself to a cold, blended beverage at Starbucks (my favorite is a green tea frappacino)
  • Leave your footprints on a deserted beach
  • Take a color walk
  • Watch clouds
  • Walk barefoot in the grass
  • Toast weiners and marshmallows over a fire
  • Smell the flowers
  • Pick berries
  • Draw a picture
  • Write a poem
  • Send someone a postcard from the road
  • Swim under a waterfall
  • Rent a convertible
  • Smell freshly cut grass and hay
  • Walk under the stars and moon
  • Eat an ice cream cone
  • Whistle
  • Wish on the first star
  • Sing old campfire songs
  • Jump rope
