Each season I make a little list of the pleasures I want to soak in. I call them manifestos, but they’re really just love letters to the season. These seasonal lists are my own little things-to-do-before-the-moment-passes.
I hope to keep listing these, every Thursday, as a reminder to soak it in over the weekend (and as a mid-week cheer-up).

This next week is going to be packed with summery travely adventury goodness.

I want fully enjoy (and document with lots of photos):

  • Travelling by train, plane and Seattle's great bus system (all with my new wheel).
  • Staying with my college roomates,
  • Having lunch (and running errands – she's so sweet!) with Eileen.
  • Selling yarn, meeting knitters and having a great time at Urban Craft Uprising.
  • Exploring Portland and hitting every donut, coffee, and  yarn stores I can.
  • Having dinner at Cairene's with a bunch of lovely fellow small-biz owners/friends.
  • Going on my first real train trip, from Portland allll the way down to my dad's house in Oceanside. It's a 36-ish hour ride and we are SO excited!
  • Relaxing with my family at the beach, in the backyard and at the best farmer's market EVER.

    I love the idea of writing love letters to the seasons. This feels so much more awesome than writing to-do lists and lists of goals. It captures stuff the other lists don't. And that's delicious. Thanks for sharing this awesomesauce here. You've totally inspired me.
