Summer 2019 Bucket List

Hey guys! Thank you for being patient with me while I try to transition into summer break from teaching. The end of a school year makes me feel like I have aged 3 years some times. I have two out of the three Wylde Ivy giveaways ready, still waiting on one person to give me their info- if they don't soon I will re-draw. The Nocturne Alchemy winners will be drawn tonight after we get back from the springs. Then the Arcana and B. Perry Studios will be drawn last. I am still brewing up a few more giveaways but trying to get them aligned. 

Meanwhile, it is time for me to release the work of the school year and daydream about what I would love summer to look like with my girls.

Here are some things I would like to do with my daughters and Adam, if he can come along- work permitting, this summer:

- Visit Wekiva Springs
- Dinner and a movie at Universal Studios/City Walk
- Plot out a garden
- Visit a new state park to hike
- Ice cream at a new parlor
- Read a book outside
- Beach trip on the east coast (Daytona? Cocoa? St. Augustine?)
- Buy a plant at Florida Cactus Farm in Apopka
- Catch a play or movie at the Garden Theater in Winter Garden
- Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway
- Make ice cream or sorbet at home
- Build a fairy house near an oak
- Plant wildflowers
- Paint for fun
- Sew something

It might sound crazy, but two months goes by so very fast. The summer to a teacher is a mere blink. Making a list of things I'd like to do with the girls gives me some intention for how I want to use our time. Otherwise, it is here then gone. And this summer will go fast as lightening.

Do you have any plans for summer? Any ideas of what the girls and I should paint or sew? Any good ice cream or sorbet recipes?
