Most seasons, I like to do a “Must Do” list of things that I want to make sure I do before the time slips by.
Sometimes they’re simple, and sometimes more elaborate, but I love them because they make me think about the things that I particularly love or look forward to about that season, and sometimes just the reminder makes me happy.
Always, it pushes me to do a bit more than the everyday mundane that we often get stuck in. So, without further ado, here’s my Spring/Early Summer list of things I am looking forward to doing in and around RVA! (In no particular order)
1 Friday Cheers kicks off this week- Nothing says Summer in RVA quite like it!
2 Have a picnic at Maymont- With your love, family, friends, or a great book
3 Visit the Sno Shack in Mechanicsville for a Tiger’s Blood shave ice
4 Patio dinners! My faves- Can Can, The Daily, or East Coast Provisions
5 First Fridays in the Arts District
6 Head to Sneed’s Nursery and pick up some native plants (and plant them!)
7 Take a drive to Topping for lunch on the water at Merroir.
8 GrowRVA South of the James Market at Forest Hill Park for produce (and treats)
9 Strawberry season at Agriberry Farms means Strawberry Shortcake!
10 Get out on the James on a warm day
11 Learn something new about Richmond
12 Fire up the grill and enjoy the patio at home
Do you have a list like this? What is a must do you have for this spring?
