it’s back

Take it in folks – the long weekend in May has come and gone and that means summer is coming! In celebration of this joyous occasion and back by popular demand is my 100 days of summer to-do wish list! The rules are simple and I welcome all of you to join in with your own list – it started this weekend and ends on September 30. Get what you can get done because summer is here for a short time so it is best to make it a good time.

(You can see last year’s list here and the results here)

I am not going to lie – it’s hard to get them all done, and because I didn’t finish all of them last year, I am going to pick up a few and try again. I am also adding some from my thirty-six before thirty-six (because I am not 36 yet) and a few completed repeats because they were awesome and worth doing again! Have fun and remember to wear sunscreen.

  10. When we visit this summer I want to go to the ocean at night and have a camp fire. That might help you knock a few things off the list.
