Let’s see how things are going with my Springtime Fun List! These are the goals I set for spring 2017.
Go to the beach at least twice.
- Try two new restaurants in downtown Savannah.
- ✔ Go to Savannah’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
- Take a trip to Alaska.
- ✔ Buy a new Easter dress.
- ✔ Get a new, official (professional) picture of Gene and me.
- ✔ Focus on Easter by observing Lent.
- ✔ Make and put up some springtime decorations in the house.
- Go kayaking in a new location.
- Write at least one REAL letter or note to a friend each week.
Since the last update on April 27 we checked off a few more things:
We took that trip to Alaska! I was there for three whole weeks, a week and a half for work and then a week and a half of family vacation. I saw a portion of the Alaska Pipeline. We explored Whittier and took a glacier cruise! (We did a lot more, but I haven’t blogged about it yet!) Alaska is AMAZING! We had a great time and made a lot of memories.
While we were in Alaska our daughter got some great shots of Gene and me! She has her degree in Photography, so she counts as a professional in my book!
My original plan was to get a more formal, dressy shot, but out favorite times together tend to be outside on a trail somewhere, so I think these are great pictures of US!
We DID kayak in a new location alright! We spent about five hours kayaking on Prince William Sound while we were in Alaska. You can read all about it and see pictures here.
So what’s left to do before June 21? I need another trip to the beach. Maybe we can do that this week. We still need to try two new restaurants in Savannah. I think we’ll get that on the calendar tomorrow. If we don’t do that, it may well not happen. And I’ve STILL not written a single note/letter to a friend. I’m really bummed about that. Real mail is such a special treat!
Oh, and I guess I should post pictures of my springtime decorations! That still needs to happen too.
How are YOUR springtime plans coming along? Let me know what you’re up to! Leave me a comment below; it’ll make my day!
