Go Summer

Do you have summer resolutions? My list for this year:

Leave the country.
A couple weeks ago, Brad and I used airline miles to fly to Mexico. It was the most nothing I’ve ever done.

Go on a road trip with Hank.
We’re driving home from a wedding in Seattle right now, where the bride and groom played live Chilean Cumbia, and half the wedding toasts were in Spanish. I’m typing this from a hotel room at dawn, with the boys sleep-breathing on either side of me.

Eat a popsicle outside.
Pop Nation makes flavors like Sea Salted Dark Chocolate, Bourbon Peach, and Mango Chili Lime. I always have one at the Alameda Flea Market, and this month I had two.

• Portland
We have another wedding here. It’s one of my favorite cities.

• Robot Dance Party
Robot Dance Party! I’ve been cocooning lately, and there are too many faces I haven’t kissed. Cool, metallic robot faces.

• Street fireworks on Independence Day.
Sparklers, and Piccolo Petes, and ground flowers, and cone fountains, and watermelon.

• Feet in the river.
Sandwich in my hands.

(My last year’s summer manifesto is here, and these will be up on Go Mighty soon. If you put yours up, tag them #gosummer. I like to see what you’re up to.)

    It all sounds lovely and you sound so happy. Love it. This summer I want to be outside as much as possible and kiss my husband more.
