Summer To-Do List

I’m getting giddy for those perfect, warm summer days ahead of us. I’ve got lots of things I’m stoked about doing this summer, especially since Sam and I are moving–new beginnings are usually exciting to me. I look at them as a chance to hit the reset button and live my life the way I want to. A recalibrating of sorts. Not listed, for good reason, is “get a job” but that’s boring so we’ll stick to the fun stuff for this list:)

  • Take a road trip to the Sierra Nevada mountains for Silver Lake Resort’s 100 Year Anniversary.
  • Find a place in SE Portland to call home. Sadly, we were sent a no-cause eviction notice from our landlords last month. We were on our way out anyways so it didn’t sting as much as it could have. We’re ready for a whole new environment, one where we’ll feel welcome and allowed to have a dog. In the meantime, we’ll be living with Sam’s parents for a few months to save up some money. Life and it’s many journeys!
  • Adopt a puppy. We’re planning to work with One Tail at a Time here in Portland.
  • See the other-worldly Painted Hills in Central Oregon.
  • Play with film photography and buy a Polaroid Land Camera 420.
  • Launch my vintage online shop on Tortouga, where I’ll be selling unique pieces for the radically stylish ladies out there.
  • Learn to play acoustic guitar–my goal is to get really good at playing/singing one song by the end of summer, hopefully this one.
  • Enjoy my health, my new found sense of self and relish in my inner and outer beauty!
  • Sing more, in the name of good thyroid/throat chakra health and just because it feels good for my soul.
  • Experience a river day. It seems silly but being from Orange County, CA I’m used to beach days and I feel absolutely clueless as to what you do by a river, but I’m curious and it seems like fun!
  • I’ve been daydreaming lately of getting a longboard and skating around the neighborhood on warm summer evenings. I’m liking this one.
