Friday's Circle of Friends - May 25

circle of friendsWelcome to the afternoon edition of Friday's Circle of Friends.

It is hard to believe that May is almost over and soon it will officially be summer in our neck of the woods.

There were a lot of blog posts this week about summer vacations, fun things to do in the summer, things that are free to do in the summer, and so on.

Many people make lists of things that they plan to accomplish during the summer months. I don't recall ever doing that, but I plan to do that this summer.

So many times September arrives and I find myself thinking "man, summer went by way too quickly and what did I do?".

So do you make a list of what you plan to do each summer? Maybe your plan includes spending more time outdoors in the sun, or going golfing each weekend, or reading that interesting book that you have put off reading...whatever it is, don't let this summer slip past you.

Speaking of reading, here are some very interesting blog posts for your reading pleasure this weekend. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

6 Ways to Simplify Your Life (Without Becoming a Minimalist) by Daisy from When life gives you lemons Add Vodka.

5 Travel Hacks to Get the Most Out of Your Summer Trip by Carrie from carefulcents.

And two new friends that you will definitely want to check out this weekend!

Wishing Everyone a fun and safe weekend!

      Isn't it amazing how the month feels like it's still March, and yet your calendar says the it's almost June? That always gets me. Anyway, just as you've suggested, I'm going to sit down and make a gargantuan list of things that I plan to do this Summer. Thank you, Sicorra, for the reminder and the early Summertime smiles.

      And, thank you ever so kindly for including my post on your powerful weekend list. I love meeting new people, and I'll be sure to pay a visit to Mindy and Giselle.

      Hi Sicorra, thanks for including me! I am loving the Positively Positive blog. It's right up my alley. I'm off to read it right now.

      Thanks for introducing us to new blogs that we may not have heard of. I know sometimes I get so overwhelmed just catching up with the blogs that I already read - it's hard for me to find the time to venture out and find new blogs. There's just so many out there, and they're FREE! I can't get enough. I may be a bit obsessed.

      AH I just noticed I forgot to include you in my #FF gal pals edition. There are just so many gal bloggers out there I forgot! You're definitely one of my faves though :)

      Anyway, I hope you have a fabulous weekend. I'll be adding you to my weekly favorites as well :)
