It feels good to be getting out of the house more these days, and even though I’m limited in my shoe choices and try to select pieces that will hide my still very swollen knee as best I can in the summer heat, just being able to visit the neighborhood farmers markets feels like a huge accomplishment.

Pinned back braids, flowing white dresses, and little denim jackets perfect for summer days that hint of rain.  And still wearing the only shoes that will fit my swollen feet comfortably.

Summer Bucket List

summertodo_1

Holy macaroni, next week is July!  I don’t even know how that happened, probably because our little week-long festivaling made time fly, but still, it’s the perfect reality check/reminder that I need to get on my summer to-do list.

Play mini golf – I’m admittedly awful at a round of putt-putt but hey, it’s all in good fun, and it’s one of those activities that screams summer to me.

Take a beach day trip – We’ve always grown up so close to the shore that it’s easy to take it for granted.  Especially because working from home you tend to feel guilty spending a weekday afternoon playing “hooky” while thinking about everything you should be doing.  I’m making it a priority to get at least one… or two… or a few, beach days on the calendar.

Get back on my bike – Our town has a bike share program that allows you to essentially rent the bike of your choice for the year.  (Mine was a beach cruiser complete with a basket, the bike I’d had my eye on buying anyway — score!)  Last summer we rode our bikes almost daily, but with my injury/surgery we haven’t even taken them out of the garage…yet.  I started physical therapy yesterday and told my doctor my big goal is to ride my bike before the end of summer.
