I love making summer plans, and this isn’t just a list for general inspiration but an actual “to do” list for my summer! Some things are on my list every year, like having a picnic… which is basically just weather dependent. But I’ll be hoping to put a tick next to everything by the end of summer…
Number 2: I’ll be reading lots of books anyway, but there’s something special about reading in the garden with a glass of wine, or perhaps on the beach. Classic summer feels.
Number 4: Going to a music festival is a big part of summer for a lot of people, but I was thinking it doesn’t even have to be the scale of Glastonbury or Coachella. In Manchester we are having an ice cream festival this summer(!) so I’ll definitely be attending that one. Plus there’s Manchester International Festival during July. So whether it’s vintage, gin, film or arts, festivals are a good one for the list.
Number 8: I love the idea of giving my home interiors a new look every now and again, even if it’s just moving the furniture around or buying a whole new set of cushions.
Number 10: Because receiving a proper letter (i.e. not bills or marketing material) feels amazing, so why not share the love?
Number 16: Summer is a great time to learn something new. Whether it’s crafty, something outdoorsy, or even something technical that could help with your career goals.
Number 17: Summer isn’t summer if you haven’t found a theme song by the end of it. And then whenever you hear this song in the future you’ll always remember summer 2017!
What summer plans do you have?
