Summer wish list

BloggingSamantha WetterholmComment

Holy chocolate starfish batman, it’s June! May went by incredibly fast for us as you could imagine. This is my last month of maternity leave, sad face. I hope to get as much out of this month as possible before I head back to school.

Summer is my favorite season. I love Christmas time the best when it comes to holidays, but the summer time holds a special place in my heart. I have always loved the long summer days and all that they hold. Although I will be in school all summer, I still hope to have a great time with friends, family, and sweet baby Emma. Summer in San Francisco is much different than the summers of my youth in the heat of LA, but I hope to still celebrate with my favorite activities.

1 :: Go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the San Francisco Zoo.

2 :: Make homemade peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream.

3 :: Spend many weekends walking to the Ferry Building farmer’s market and Fisherman’s Wharf.

4 :: Play tennis (and spend as much time outside as possible). 

5 :: Go to the beach.

6 :: Head down to LA to visit family.

7 :: Take a drive down the coast and hit up some beach towns (Santa Barbara, if we can swing it).

8 :: Eat lots of fresh seafood, especially peel-and-eat shrimp.

9 :: Have many happy-hour-at-home nights with friends.

10 :: Go shopping for some new postpartum outfits. 

I cannot wait to expose Emma to my favorite summer activities. I hope she loves this season as much as I do.

What is on your summer wish list?
