It’s no secret that summer is by far the best season of the year…and it’s definitely my favorite season. I’d take beach days over pretty much any other day, and it really brings out the best in me. Sunshine, sand and BBQs, there’s just nothing better. If you aren’t careful, it can go by in the blink of an eye though. Here’s three fool-proof ways to make sure that you make the most of every single weekend.
- Why wait for Friday? I love starting the weekend early. No need to wait for Friday night to have fun when you can start the shenanigans early. Thursday is truly one of my favorite nights of the week (ok, I said one!) because the next day is Friday, which means you have so much fun ahead of you! Plan ahead and grill, open a bottle of bubbly and kick your feet up. It’s almost the weekend!
- Plan a trip, even if it’s only an hour away! One of the very best things about summer is just that constant sense of exploration. I like to book a couple trips a summer, even if they aren’t terribly far. I’ve packed up and gone to Palm Desert, Lake Havasu, planning a trip to Santa Barbara and always have something exciting to look forward to!
- Screw your Sunday night routine. In the winter, I am all about meal prepping on Sunday. I do all my errands, go to farmer’s markets, relax with a bath right before bed, I basically do all the things to prep for the week ahead. But in the summer, you can’t dare to waste a day outside!
