5 things you'll need for this summer

every single time, without fail, as ben and i drive across the golden gate bridge with our kids, they don't even look up. we call their attention to this amazing architecture. they might glance, but return to their books and conversation. ben and I gasp every. single. time.

if we’re not careful, dare I say intentional, we won’t even look up and notice that where we live is a part of God’s design for us. it’s a gift. it’s a masterpiece to enjoy. it’s a discovery.

if you missed the 1 must-do can-do summer activity we're thrilled about, you can read it here.

let's take the TWELVE WAYS TO LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE and create some intentionality around the next few weeks when you're in town. i'll be writing stories and ideas on these weekly, but here's some things you can make sure you have on hand: 

flowers, calendar, whiffle ball, sidewalk chalk, weather app, summer series grid on table

5 things you'll need for this summer:

1. your personal calendar

2. a link to your city/community events (here's the one i use in san francisco)

3. a relationship with the weather channel (gotta know when the sun rises and sets!)

4. whiffle ball set or sidewalk chalk (your pick)

5. access to flowers or a flower delivery service

okay. so you'll also need communication, planning, and a bit of awareness, but those already seem like givens considering you're up for this summer fun!
