I used to write these all the time and got back into it last year, so here we are again with a somewhat similar post! I really am hoping to read some good seasonal stories this year because I failed with last summer’s TBR. Bring on the beach reads!

Summer Plans & Bucket List
1. Go to the beach more than once
I’m not huge on the beach usually but I had a great time last summer going with some of my aunts, cousins, and sister. I hope Chris and I manage to go a few times (especially in Maine – we’re hoping to get back up there during the Fourth of July holiday weekend). I love reading under an umbrella and now I have some decent bathing suits too!
2. Read on the porch/outside every nice day
I know this is a big-sounding goal (“every day”) but it’s pretty reasonable as long as I’m home! I can take my lunch outside with the pup and read or sit on the porch after work to read a chapter or two. If it’s not raining and not a million degrees, I need to enjoy my porch while I can!
3. Use my roller skates
I bought skates a year ago and have been generally too afraid to use them after I fell in the house lol. I need a helmet and then I’ll be good to go!
4. Eat 2 lobster rolls per month
I hope to eat more but I know that’s a big one haha. I had my first of the season the other day when I was driving down to the shore for the Abby Jimenez event and it was so good. I got my second when we were in Maine last weekend. So far so good – two in May!
5. Enjoy a long weekend trip or two
We have plans to go to the Jersey shore with Chris’s parents, sister, her husband, and their kids, but otherwise nothing else is booked. Most of May and June are busy with birthday parties and babies and Jack and Jills, but there are a couple free weekends we could make it work. I just want to go somewhere nice with a lake or something.
