22 Things To Do This Summer

22 Things To Do This Summer

Now that summer is officially here, it’s time to enjoy all of  festivities the warmer months bring. Technically, we’ve already been in summer-mode for a good month here in Missouri, but having it be official is always so much more fun. I absolutely love this season because its when I feel most alive. The sun is out longer, nature is positively thriving, events are happening every week, and there’s a bright, exciting energy in the air that’s almost impossible not to embrace. This is the season that I like to get out and do fun things to soak up every bit of sunshine I can, and I’ve got a list of activities I’m definitely going to accomplish before the warm weather is through.

22 Things To Do This Summer

  1. Go see a live firework show to celebrate Independence Day
  2. Have a big family barbecue
  3. Visit the local farmers market for fresh produce to create a new recipe
  4. Hit up the library for some summer reading material
  5. Switch to lighter skincare products and bring out tropical, bronzy shades for makeup
  6. Spend an afternoon at the park with a good book and some lunch
  7. Snap photos of the local scenery, especially flowers and blooming trees
  8. Create a fun playlist of current hits to rock out to during workouts and road trips
  9. Visit a flower shop for fresh blooms to brighten up your space
  10. Update your decor with seasonal-appropriate artwork, pillows, etc.
  11. Get completely obsessed with the new season of Big Brother (who else will be watching?)
  12. Try out some homemade popsicle recipes from Pinterest
  13. Spend a day at the county fair (and get way too much cotton candy)
  14. Take a road trip to a new destination
  15. Go berry picking at a local farm
  16. Stay up late and go star-gazing with friends
  17. Make a fresh pitcher of homemade lemonade or sun tea
  18. Get a group together to go play minigolf
  19. Spend a morning rummaging through yard sales and flea markets
  20. Create some cute floral decor, DIY-style
  21. Find a drive-in theater to see old movies
  22. Grow some fresh herbs for your kitchen

    I feel like Summer is also a great time of year to sort things out… I know it’s stereotypically a Spring thing, but still…! However, I agree, I love popping down the the park with a book and a picnic!

    I think I’m going to try #6 this week! My husband and I live near a lake so maybe I’ll take a chair, pack a lunch, my #4 summer reading book and spend the day at the lake!
