Essential Summer Experiences

I can’t tell if this is a common pre-teen phase or a 1999-era phenomenon, but the summer I turned 13 I was obsessed with collecting, and following, Summer To-Do Checklists in teen girl magazines.

The month of July has unfolded for me like I am following another checklist. I have experienced:

A Scary Movie: The first one in a long time, and the last one hopefully for forever!

A Pool. Well, several pools, and I am thankful for each and every one!

A Carnival Ride: I think this was my first in 12 years. We did it for science.

TIME OUTSIDE! Let’s start with something countrified.

 

The Beach: My heart.

 

Hiking.

 

Down Time to Create Something.
I made another round of kombucha:
