One Last Summer Visit!
And just like that, we’re nearly half way through August! How has summer flown by so quickly? I guess it’s true that time flies when you’re having a good time! As we prepare to get back into the full swing school and work schedule, let’s try to cross off those last items on our summer bucket lists!
Even if you don’t have time to fit in another trip, or if you’re just ready to wind down, there’s still some easy and fun ways to make full use of these hot days. Another pool day? Hosting a small backyard barbecue? Let’s alleviate that end of season sadness, and go out with a bang!
Explore your own city or town
You might be thinking “been there, done that” but chances are- there’s probably something in your neighborhood that you have yet to explore. It could be as simple as a new restaurant, park, or museum exhibit. When you really look into it, you might be amazed at all of the things going on just around the corner!
Read a book or do an art project
Or maybe you’re just finishing the one you already started! Either way, summer should signify time to take to yourself and do something you enjoy. Things can start to kick up in the Fall, and as holidays come around, we can tend to put these projects on the back burner. So whether it’s learning to sew, finishing a home improvement project, or any other hobby- it’s the perfect time to get into it!
Find an outdoor hiking spot close by
Almost anywhere you are based geographically, there’s bound to be a nearby hiking spot, river, or trail that you’ve never been to! It doesn’t have to be a glamorous getaway to enjoy the nature around us!
Host a barbecue
What better way to end summer than to get together with our friends and family around some good food and drinks! This doesn’t need to be a huge production, but instead a casual and relaxing good time. We’ve definitely shared a ton of recipes over the last couple of months so check out some refreshing drink ideas HERE and some of our favorite foods HERE, if you’re looking for some things to bring people around the table!
There’s a ton of other things we can still do to finish out the summer right- so soak in that sun, enjoy all the cold treats, and relax! Comment below to let us know what you’re doing to close out the season!
