Sweet Summertime

BeachDay_Federated_3I can’t believe it is almost the middle of August. I all of a sudden have this overwhelming feeling of wtf have I been doing these past two months? Because I surely have not taken advantage of these sunny months that fly by so fast and are gone in the blink of an eye. I don’t know if it is the fact that my calendar can’t seem to stay still and is constantly bouncing me all over the place, or the final countdown of our wedding that makes me want to scream with excitement but also cry from anxiety, but aside from a few days at my lake house I haven’t really relished in this beautiful season. I need to change that. I have been putting a lot of pressure on myself to maintain a packed schedule, make it into the office, skip a workout class for a morning meeting, and I’m feeling this strong separation from just being. I’m going through the motions, you know? Really distracted and the days and weeks just keep slipping through my fingers. So today I want to share a few things on my to-do list over the next few weeks. Before September hits and we are really in the final crazy countdown to September 20th, followed by our honeymoon, and then fall! Omg.

1. Chicago Architectural Tour, which I love to do every summer.

2. A beach day with friends.

3. Host a fiesta at our condo.

4. A Sunday Funday picnic in the park.

5. A day at the pool.

6. Another trip to my lake house.

…and so many more that I can’t think of right now. So TGIF friends. Go out and chase the summer!
