Saturday is the first of June,my favorite month of the year, and it means that summer is here! Today I’m sharing three things I’m going to be doing to help me to have a mindful summer.
First, I’m starting a new thing called Macro Mondays. This came about when Vicki and I both realized we had missed Macro May and we chatted about what we could do instead and I came up with the idea of Macro Monday. So, for each Monday in June, July and August, I will be sharing a photo taken with my big camera using the macro lens. I’m doing this for a couple of reasons – one, because it will encourage me to use the big camera – and two – because it will make it easy to plan a Monday post in advance so that I can enjoy my weekend without thinking about processing photos and writing a blog post. If you’d like to join us that would be terrific
Second, I’m going to create a summer bucket list. This is not by any stretch of the imagination a to do list. There will be nothing on there about clearing clutter or home repairs, no plans for things I should do, no list of activities to hustle through and check off, it’s more of a list of ideas, of ways to truly enjoy summer. Things like eating lobster and ice cream, riding in the convertible, taking trips to the beach, spending lots of time on the deck, hosting gatherings under the pergola and around the firepit . . . you get the idea.
Third, I’m going to participate in Michelle’s A Tiny Bit of Quiet. There will be journaling prompts every Friday encompassing the themes of gratitude, intention, and self. I think it sounds wonderful and will be a great thing to look forward to each week.
What will you be doing this summer? I’d love to hear about your plans! I’d also love it if you share your Thursday post link below!
