Our 2013 Summer Manifesto

Last year Chris and came up with 15 things that we wanted to do and accomplish during the summer and created a manifesto or “a public declaration of intentions” …we weren’t that successful at crossing things off of our list, but the ones that were crossed off were done so while making some of our best memories.

Naturally we thought we’d give it a try again. We have some specific ones, some a little bit more broad and all of them we picked in the hopes of making this summer a memorable one.

Here is our Summer Manifesto for 2013.


1. Write a song together.
2. Complete a house project.
3. Go on a night-time picnic.
4. Try a new restaurant and/or food.
5. Take our puppy to the lake.
6. Complete an art project each.
7. Get a couple’s massage.
8. Pick fresh fruit somewhere local.
9. Go to a concert.
10. Paint pottery together at a local art gallery.

I am excited for this summer and can’t wait to do the things on our list, document and share them. It should make for a pretty great summer! Lots of content for my Project Life pages and my Summer of Love art journal.


Did you create a Summer Manifesto this year?
I’d love to see what you’re planning on filling your summer with!

  1. What a fun list! I hope you're able to do everything on it. :)

    1. Me too!! I was so bummed last year that we didn't get everything completed, so we made the list a little bit smaller and more realistic this year. :) I should have put "meeting Heather" on there!! ;)
