I’ve noticed a horrific pattern in my blogging: I’ll blog all Fall and most of Winter and then punk out the second it starts to warm up. It’s possibly because March–May is my busiest time of year but it’s also possible that I go a little weak in the knees for warmer weather. Either way, this Spring has been the busiest of my life: working full time at school, coaching, writing copy for four campaigns, boots on the ground in one campaign, and still trying to maintain some semblance of a home//social life. Pile on my brother’s wedding bookended by my brother-in-law’s wedding and I found myself on the verge of a major meltdown. As always, I pulled through and have three glorious months to focus on my physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Setting goals seems to be part of my DNA. What’s the point if we aren’t striving towards something? This summer I want to…
1. Read more. I’ve always been an avid reader, but during election cycles, I find it hard to read anything except copy…lots and lots of copy. My summer reading list includes:
2. Spend more time outdoors with this guy.
3. Go to Lake Burton and turn off my phone.
4. Drink loads of tea.
5. Take lots of naps.
What about you? Do you have lofty summer goals? What books are on your summer reading list?
P.S. This granita sounds amazing…maybe pineapple & mint?
Medoc, France has been added to my bucket list.
