Summer Wonder

Friday, June 17, 2011

The anticipation of summer....I love the promise it brings! So many hopes for excitement and magic- along with all the memories to cherish. I always approached summer with a sort of theme or idea as to how it would all play out, projects I hoped to complete, books I wanted to read, and adventures to find. 

I found this charming idea of creating a summer wish list on Home Stories - and what I love most about it is that it captures all the little things that make for a magical summer. Not big vacations or events, but rather the small wonders. 

With baby arriving any day (really, any day now!!) summer holds another aspect of hope for our family....here's a few things on our list:

1. make homemade popsicles 
2. take Jack outside to look at the stars
3. walk in the late evening sun
4. sit on the porch with my husband
5. drive somewhere wide & open
6. stroll the farmer's markets with my two little ones
7. let baby's toes touch the sand
8. pick berries
9. eat strawberry shortcake... a lot of it. 
10. reminisce about past summers...and not be sad
11. photograph everything

{what's on your summer list? }

What a great list - many of these are on mine as well! One of mine is to sit out back in the evenings as much as possible, letting the day settle around me.

I love your list. Right now mine is to get our rental cabins open, and then be able to spend some time up there enjoying the peace and serenity and beauty.
