Not a Motivational Monday today, I looked and looked at quotes and I couldn't really find anything that suited. Last week was quite challenging in my personal life (although great in my work life) so I won't try to preach to you how to do something when I'm not feeling it myself.
Instead, I thought I'd do one of my favourite blog activities, a list!
Lists bring me the greatest of joys. I wrote a similar one last year and remember enjoying trying to tick everything off. As life has progressed there are new things to try and more adventures to be had so I thought it would be nice to set out a hopeful goals list of things to do this summer. I'll check back in September and see how I got on.
Buy new garden furniture.
Host at least 5 'Drinks on the Decking' afternoons.
Spend time with Darcy outside.
Build her picnic table.
Have a day at the seaside.
Organise a Mummy Group picnic somewhere beautiful.
Cheer for Darcy on her first sports day!
Absolutely stuff myself with strawberries.
Have an afternoon at a PYO farm with friends.
Have a grown up night out with nice dresses and cocktails.
Go to the health club at least twice a week.
Take Darcy to the play farm place with her friends.
Download and watch Darling Buds of May.
Have long evenings in the garden with friends.
Pick a month and vlog every day of it.
Work towards de-cluttering my office.
Take a big trip to Seattle with Darcy and love each moment!

For now, I think that will do. I'm walking into this new season feeling stronger than I did last year. I am so grateful for all my blessings and all the sweet things that I have and intend to enjoy each and every day.
What do you look forward to in the Summer?
