It’s easy to let summer pass in a blur and not have many memories to cherish come fall. I remember my mom commenting that once the 4th of July passed it seemed that the summer was over. Not so fast! This year I am listing my intentions and making time to enjoy this wonderful season and create some lasting memories. I’ve got my list ready: some easy, some will take a little more planning.

  • Roll down the window on my morning drive to the store. (I wonder if it will be as fun as it was when I was a kid.)
  • Wear polka dot pants.
  • Visit my local farmer’s market and gear my meals by what is fresh and abundant and savor the flavors.
  • Channel my mom and make a fresh Palisade, Colorado peach pie.
  • Attend a concert at Red Rocks… I’m thinking Lionel Ritchie or The Piano guys
  • Pursue my inner bookworm, but read one classic and one non-fiction.
  • Wear some cork earrings shaped like feathers.
  • Watch Long Hot Summer– could Paul Newman be more splendid?
  • Take my granddaughters to a play in New York City.
  • Wear linen and not mind that it’s wrinkled.
  • Eat as many meals outside as possible.
  • Work on my closet- by July I should have worn most of my clothes. The ones I haven’t, need to be edited.
  • Freshen my summer wardrobe with some new tee-shirts.
  • Wear colorful, comfortable tennis shoes.
  • Hike a new trail, go on a bike ride, practice my shoulder stand in Yoga
  • Go bowling (I’m not sure where that came from, but it sounds fun).
  • Cherish and spend time with the peeps in my life.
  • Travel to a new location: travel replenishes and renews.
  • Learn to accept my swimsuit body (OMG).
  • Be present in the moment and not check my phone every 10 minutes.
  • My motto will be, “Be sure not to fizzle when the summer starts to sizzle”.

What are your intentions? What are your stories- I’d love to hear.
