summer to do list.

{ via Alba Love }

What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good to do list.  While these lists often cover the mundane – from groceries to every detail of my Saturday – I always try and make things fun with a seasonal to do list as a reminder to relax and live a little.  A to do list was definitely in order to celebrate my first summer in Chicago, so here are some of the things I’m hoping to accomplish over the next few months while soaking up some sunshine:

Kayak the Chicago River

Take Callie to the dog beach

Host a cocktail party on my roof deck (bonus points if it’s fireworks night)

Spend a day at the Art Institute

Join a book club

Ride a bike

Do yoga in Grant Park

Make fancy fruit popsicles

Go out on Lake Michigan on a boat

Have a picnic

Find a running group for marathon training

I love how different summer is for everyone – from traveling to relaxing – everyone seems to have their own agenda and recipe for the perfect summer.  Do you have any fun plans for this summer or a summer to do list of your own?  Have any other suggestions for me to add to my list?
