Covering all Bases

How is it the first week of April?! We are already 1/4 of the way through the year! I am not too upset about it given the fact that I don't love the winter months and it means the weather is supposed to be getting warmer... ( I've lived in Utah enough to know that isn't always the case. ) Thank goodness I have my Birthday and Valentines day to break up the monotony of the "near -spring" weather. As great as it is that these bleh months have passed so quickly, unfortunately, it seems that my favorite Summer months slip by even quicker than those before. Every year, I always seem to find myself where Summer has gone and wishing I would have taken better advantage of the warm weather. But not this year! This year I am covering all my bases. I don't know about you but Summer for me starts as soon as I can walk outside without a jacket on which means It is right around the corner. I have thought up and composed a "Summer To - Do" list. Although it is constantly being added to, I already feel prepared to fully embrace Summer and all it has to offer.

I made my To - Do List using my favorite Tombow pen which you can find Here. And learn more about Brush Lettering in my latest post Here.

When I think of summer, I think of S'mores, lakes, ocean, BBQ, chapped lips, late nights, road trips, projects, new play lists and a lot of good stories. With that being said, it was pretty easy to start a list for the summer .... here are a my top 25.
