I love lists. I don’t know how many times I can start a blogpost with “I love lists” but there must be at least one post a season. Somehow sitting at the start of a season and listing the things I want to do or places I want to visit makes me feel better. It gives me a sense of achievement at odds with the fact that all I actually have done is write a few words.
Anyway, it’s summertime and the heat is growing stronger. I’ve beem dreaming of things that I like about summer. Taking that time out of a busy life and examining the world around me to find the small, or not so small, things that I like to do. I’m going to put the list into my bullet journal, my book of lists, but for now, here’s an infographic.
What would be on your ideal summer list? I’ll be back all next week looking at summer hygge home and away, but I’d love to know what sights, sounds, smells and sensations make your summer complete.
Summer hygge should totally be a hashtag. Are you on Instagram? Add it to your next summery post, and we can enjoy it together. #summerhygge … because hygge isn’t just for wintertime. How to Hygge Your Summer is the book I wish I’d had when my children were young. I wrote it on purpose to show that hygge, that warm, happy hygge feeling, isn’t just a thing for cosy throws and candles, but a year-round feeling. It has ideas for making your house and garden a better place to enjoy hygge, and for enjoying the season whatever your age or the weather. Oh, and it has good reviews.
