Can you believe it's the end of August?

Is it just me or did the end of the summer come way too quickly? I'm trying to enjoy every minute outside! I remember when I worked full-time in an office I totally reveled in my 15 minutes and lunch hour outside...vowing that if I was a stay-at-home-mom I'd always be outside enjoying the perfect Minnesota summers. We don't have perfect weather for long but boy, is it great here in the summer! Well, normal life and small business responsibilities don't let me tan all day...but I'm going to make time for a walk every day! I used to make a list every summer that helped me enjoyed everything the summer offers...and I'm the kind of person that like to make lists and check things off!

Here's some of my favorites:

-must lay in the grass at night and stare at the stars!

-must tan/freckle and read magazines...with Eva Cassidy as background music! (Check her out! All of her albums are amazing!)

-must get the family together for laughs!

-must go a picnic outing!

-must write to friends I've lost touch with!

-must go on vacation!

-must have a dairy queen dipped cone on a really hot day!

-must go see a late movie about a summer romance.

-must take a romantic summer walk, holding hands, and ending in a sweet good night kiss!

-must have fun with water outside!

-must take a road trip and eat lots of junk food!

What's on your list? My advice for something on your "summer to do list" before it's too late!
