7 Things to Do Before Summer Ends

Whoa, I cannot believe summer is flying by as fast as it is! Though most of us work year-round and the buildup to summer isn’t as exciting as it used to be, I still get so excited for the summer months, the sundresses and warm weather, and the unique things you can do. 

Before fall arrives, I wanted to make a little list of fun and/or positive things we can all do to celebrate the end of summer!

7 Things to Do Before Summer Ends

Spend Some Time by the Water
This is obviously different for all of us since I can’t make it to the ocean this month, but I want to squeeze in one or two more lake days or at least lay by a pool for a bit to soak up some warm sunshine (with spf of course). If you live near a beach, please take advantage on behalf of the rest of us! 

Try a New Spot for Date Night
Whether it’s a date with your significant other or a get-together with friends, pick a spot you’ve been wanting to try! Trey and I can sometimes be bad about visiting our old favorites over and over, but lately we’ve been trying to branch out and try new places and new activities. 

Do a Closet Clean-out
I love to do a seasonal closet cleanout when I evaluate what I didn’t wear that season. I always donate a large portion, but I also sell some pieces on Poshmark (username @lovelenore) and have done local Facebook sales as well (with great success). It always feels nice to enter a new season with a clean closet! This may not necessarily be a “fun” activity, but it will make you feel so good moving into the fall!

Spend an Evening on Your Patio 
We love to take a night here & there to hangout on our back porch. We’ll grill our dinner, share a bottle of wine, and either listen to music or watch a tv show on the ipad. It’s so fun to sit outside with our cute lights and potted plants, just enjoying each other’s company and soaking up a warm summer evening. If you don’t have a patio of your own, check out a local brewery or winery’s patio. Bonus points if there’s live music!

Read a Just-for-Fun Book
I’ll be honest, I don’t read as often as I would like and when I do read it’s often a nutrition or health type of book. I always say I’m “too busy” and most of my time is spent with a computer in front of my face. If you’re someone who reads all the time then this idea probably doesn’t seem like a big deal, but if you’re like me and have a stack of books on your “must read” list, pick one up and allow yourself some time to relax and read for fun!

Make Homemade Sushi
Trey and I recently tried our hands at homemade sushi, and it was actually so good! We definitely need more practice, but it was fun to do together as an at-home date night, and we got our sushi fix for a lot less money than it would have been to go out. We ordered a sushi making kit off of Amazon, and then looked up some recipes and tutorials.  

Be a Tourist in Your Own Area
I need to follow my own advice, because there are so many great things to do in our area that Trey and I have never taken the time to do! Usually when we’re off of work we just want to be home (I’m the biggest homebody), but when we do decide to explore a new activity we always have fun together. A couple of things on my list are to explore some state parks that are within 1-2 hours of driving, and to visit a large aquarium in a neighboring city!
