Goals. We all have them. Maybe you want to climb Mt. Everest. (I did, at one point.) Maybe you want to write a best-selling novel. Maybe you have goals as simple as “learn how to make a pie crust” or “wake up on time for the bus”.
Whatever your goals are, make sure you have them. Even if it’s only two. Even if it’s just one!
Here are my goals for this summer. They are fun and uncomplicated and hopefully, some of these goals will get repeated more than once. Like fruit picking and ice cream making. Because you can’t ever have enough fruit and ice cream, am I right?!
I’m off to fulfill some more of my goals. Tell me if you have anything special planned for this summer! My #summergoals could always use additions. And one last thing! I’m taking a photography course at FIT this July and plan on spending a lot of time in the city. If you have any recommendations for places I should go to/see/shop at, let me know!
Ok, now I’m going to go make some ice cream.


  1. sell pies sold my first (blueberry) pie on July 17th!
  2. go to a rooftop party in the city
  3. make salted caramel ice cream David Lebovitz’s recipe, of course. July 22.

  1. I love this list. It sounds doable. Falafel at Mamouns might work for #6 or Soom Soom. There’s a drive in at my hometown of Warwick, NY about an hour from NYC, north. And if you sell pies, I’m buying! xo

    • I’m definitely going to check those places out. I also heard of a place called nish nush- apparently they have really good vegetarian/Mediterranean food, so I’m excited to try it out. And maybe one day I’ll get to Warwick, if just for the drive in! It’s on my list. I’ll let you know more. 🙂
      Also, if I sell even one pie, I will be a happy girl! There’s something satisfying about the thought of being able to make a lot of pie, and having other people enjoy it. I hope it works out!! xx
