Hi friends! I hope you’ve been having a great summer so far!! I am settling into life in Charleston and have been soaking up the summer days. My apartment has a swimming pool and it has been so nice to get to swim in the 95+ degree weather! Today I’m sharing 5 ways to spend a summer day.
1. Water Activities
I love spending time in the water. If you live near a lake or the ocean, look into kayak/rowboat rentals and spend an afternoon enjoying the water! I also love boating in the summer, so if you have a boat or have a friend with a boat…that’s another great way to stay cool and spend your day in the sun. In Lake Union (located in Seattle) they have a hot-tub boat company that I have been dying to go on and will hopefully try out when I’m visiting in a few weeks.
2. Make Some Summer Treats
When I think of summer one of the first things that comes to my mind is DESSERT! I love treating myself in the summer to sorbets, gelatos, popsicles, and more. I found some Pinterest recipes that would be perfect for summer and you can find those here: Strawberry Crisp, Pink Lemonade Pie, 3-Ingredient Strawberry Sorbet.
3. Summer-Specific Activities In Your City
Summer has so many perfect activities to offer! From sunflower fields, cherry picking, strawberry picking, lavender fields, & more…there are so many different places that each State has to offer. Research the area you live in and find an activity that is exclusive to summertime!
4. Outdoor Movie Night
Grab some friends and plan an outdoor movie night! Find a spot and set up a projector and some blankets/pillows. If you have a pool it would be so fun to grab some floaties and swim while the movie is projecting on the side of your house. Don’t forget your favorite rom-com and some snacks!!
5. Host a ‘summertime soiree’ with friends
Summertime is always a great time to get together with your girlfriends and have a fun dinner party! I love hosting get-togethers and seeing friends from High School that I rarely see anymore. I always love putting together a charcuterie board and some fruit, ordering a pizza & calling it good! Invite all of your friends to dress up and make sure to take lots of photos!!
