Soaking Up the Last Bit of Summer!

Summer is Ending. Kids are headed back to school next week! 

As September is upon us, it’s time to make those plans for some last minute summer fun. There are so many things you can do that are fun and local. Have you visited your local zoo, gone mini golfing, or had a picnic in a local park? No matter where you live, I’m sure this article will help drum up some ideas to explore for you and your loved ones. 

For adults, I love going to local breweries and wineries to support local businesses. It’s like an adult picnic! Grab some friends or a date and pack some cheese, crackers, fruit and veggies and enjoy the day. You can also go to new local restaurants and have a date night or girls night out. I love getting out and going to a concert or a bar with local bands to dance the night away or just enjoy from the bar. There are so many great outdoor areas that make a cool ambience and unique experience. 

For families, there are fairs, petting zoos, farms, and other cute low key local hotspots that are sure to impress and not break the bank. Or how about a water park or amusement park for the day to get some thrill and exercise for the kiddos. There’s still time to go pick fruit and have a day to visit a local orchard. Sunflower mazes are going on and in full bloom. There are always pop up markets, carnivals, and parades that kids would love too. And many towns do touch a truck experiences this time of year. 

If you can, plan a beach or lake day to just relax and get some time to slow down. OR maybe plan a day trip to somewhere you have been wanting to visit.

School time and the holidays are upon us. Stay safe and much love! Enjoy the last bit of summer.

Favorite TV Shows

I love immersing myself into the arts, whether that be my obvious passion (writing) or other mediums such as music, movies, and tv shows. Here are a few of my favorite tv shows and why I love them!


TV Shows for when I need a good laugh:

The Big Bang Theory is a comedy about physicists Leonard and Sheldon who have brilliant minds that understand how the universe works. However no amount of book smarts helps them interact with people. They must learn the day to day interactions on their own.


How I Met Your Mother follows the story a father tells to his children about how he met their mother and the life leading up to and around it. It’s a great show that follows the lives of 5 best friends and the lessons they experience and learn from.

TV Shows for when I’m in the mood for action:

NCIS LA follows the exploits of the Los Angeles-based Office of Special Projects, an elite division of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service that specializes in undercover assignment. It’s a great action show that has plenty of stand alone episodes with a flowing side story as well.


Jack Ryan is a series based on characters from the fictional “Ryanverse” created by Tom Clancy. This show follows a CIA analyst who is pulled into the field with a past that is more than meets the eye.


TV Shows for when I’m in the mood for romance and drama:

Sweet Magnolias is a tv show based on the novels written by Sherryl Woods. It follows three women from South Carolina who have been best friends since childhood. They explore the complexities of romance, career, and family.
