Heather: Summer in a New Abode

Wanna know what I'm doing? Writing papers... not blog posts. I would like to be writing blog posts, but that's not how my life works at the end of the semester. While I'm writing (and then grading) and anxiously awaiting the start of my summer vacation, I've asked some darling girls to guest post this week about their summer goals. First off, we have the darling Heather of Brown Eyed Bell(e). Read her fun list below, then pop over to her blog to say HI!

When Jen contacted me to do a guest post on Summer Goals I got a little giddy. I mean, come on, who doesn't get excited thinking about summer being right around the corner? Though in Florida, it's technically already here. We get "hot" and "hotter" for our seasons :) I am here today to share some of MY summer goals (i.e. over the next few months) with YOU.

This summer I am looking forward to:

♥ My husband learning how to use our new grill and getting much use of our pool/patio area. We just moved into our 1st home in February so this is our 1st summer living here. I can't wait to make beautiful memories.

♥ A visit from my sister. She is supposed to come visit me for a week in August. This is an amazing blessing because my sister and I were not raised together. She was adopted and we did not even meet each other until we were in our early twenties. We have only met a handful of times in person as we live in different states. We communicate daily via texting and have an extremely close bond. I can't wait to have her with me for a whole week. We will be cooking up a storm! She's ready to teach her little sis everything she knows! I think we need more than a week!


♥ Speaking of cooking, I am so looking forward to trying some new recipes via pinterest this summer.

♥ MAYspiration: During the month of May I am looking to inspire and motivate change. If we want to see change in the world, we have to BE the change. I have various guest posters lined up throughout the month and I can't wait to share inspiring and motivating things with you. Maybe you will even learn about a cause you'd never heard of before. It is sure to be an exciting month and I hope you will swing by to say hello, and maybe even link up at the end of the month. I'd love to hear what YOU are doing.


♥ Gardening. I don't have a green thumb, that I know, BUT, I want to attempt gardening. I think I've missed the prime time for planting fruits and veggies but I am going to into it.

♥ A possible trip to Savannah, Georgia. A good friend of mine just moved there last week and I am really hoping to head that way for a weekend visit this summer.

♥ Annual Anna Maria Island trip with my girlfriends. Every August my closest girlfriends and I venture out for an all girls getaway to AMI. My mother passed in August 2001 and it's always been a hard month for me. Now, instead of dreading the month, I look forward to it every year as I know I have beach time with the girls. Thanks to them, August is much brighter for me.

Those are a few of the things I am looking forward to this summer. What about you? Any summer plans?
Thanks again Jen for having me here today!
