So many books, so little time. - Frank Zappa

Dear Friend,
That word alone brings to mind a kind of freedom from the have-to's in life to more a may-do way of living. Everything slows down and we are finally able to fully exhale. Our family takes the summer away from school (one of the serious benefits of being a teacher) and we dedicate ourselves wholeheartedly to doing what we like to do.
It hasn't always been this way. We used to save all the yucky house projects for summer break and then spend the summer avoiding them and not really getting anything accomplished and also not having that much fun.
Enter the Summer of Intentionality. {thank you, Rosie!}
You can click the link above for the whole story, but it pretty much comes down to this - in order to get the most out of your summer - plan what you want to learn, what you want to do and what you want to read. - You don't even have to be a teacher to play along!
TGBTS/Tami's 2014 Summer Reading List:
The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner
Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo
A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson
Play: How It Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates The Soul by Stuart Brown
How to Be a Woman by Caitlyn Moran
Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding
And I am hoping many, many more...

Have you ever been accused of reading too much? Is there really such a thing? What are you reading this summer?
I do hope you decide to make you own Summer of Intentionality lists. Please hit reply and tell me all about it. If you'd like to take a peek at some of my lists from the past click here.

With lots of love and compassion,



PS - If you find this helpful or know someone who would, please be sure to pass it on. Sharing is caring!
