My Summer Goals

For the past few years, I've been setting seasonal goals for myself. Just little things to help me enjoy the season and focus on the now. I don't usually accomplish them all, or even half, but it's fun to try and stretch myself a little. 

Since we're right in the height {or heat, rather} of summer, I figured I'd share. Here's what I'm hoping to accomplish.
