I actually didn't toast with friends, but did sporadically make a margarita and sip it with dinner, complete with lime garnish on a proper glass. I remember raising my glass to the season with the first batch and posting 'here's to summer!' on facebook.
Chris made my summer. I listed our date activites in the first paragraph of this post.
I didn't go out for gelato, but enjoyed this and that flavor of Haagen Dazs in.
4. stroll down Main Street in Annapolis, Maryland
Have to do this during the fall! Who's coming with me?
Check out my first time making kebabs here.
I entertain frequently and enjoy playing hostess. In particular, I love dining al fresco on my balcony.

Read about my lovely picnic (and see the spread) here.
I did dress up alittle more than usual. Comfortable working in pants, I even wore a skirt on the job a couple of times. I intended to embrace my femininity even more than I did though...
I went to a nearby farmstand a couple of times. The first paragraph of this update documented the first visit.
I suppose Chris and I liked our hotel in Ocean City, Maryland. With it's great happy hour outdoors, it's a place I would stay at again. I'm a bit disappointed that I am unable to name a new town or city though...

11. stay out late
Even though I usually get in late many summer nights, I just didn't this year... Still had a good time!
See how I celebrated this Italian holiday here.
Working two jobs, I tried my best to have a fantastic summer. I believe you should work hard and play hard. Summers are meant to be lazy. Who cares if I didn't cross every single thing off my list?
I am really looking forward to this fall. I tend to travel more (comfortably and) often during the cooler seasons of spring and fall. Like I said in this post, I love to wear layers, topped with a bright warm-hued scarf, during autumn. In addition, I was so excited for the premiere of How I Met Your Mother and am looking forward to more! Even though school no longer starts at this time of year for me, I hope I experience other exciting new beginnings!
