Making summer 'funner'

We stumbled across this adorable and inspiring list of ten ways to break away from the sometimes humdrum pattern of summer and experience something new, enriching or liberating (thanks to Atlanta's own South of Market Blog!). Here are a few suggestions about how you may fulfill some of these activities around Atlanta:

2. Trips to lakes and beaches are definitely fun, but are also time consuming. If all else fails, splash around barefoot (#6) in a rain puddle.

4. In the city, it's difficult to find space for gardening, and that is where Artichoke Bliss, a community garden off of Edgewood Avenue, comes in. More information and updates are available on their Facebook page (linked above).

5. WonderRoot offers many interesting opportunities. We think the songwriting workshop taking place July 26th at 6pm sounds like a great time.

7. Or maybe give a gift. We love these interesting gift ideas from The Peak of Chic blog's recent post.

10. Revisit literary classics, such as Catcher in the Rye and Walden; or, Life in the Woods, or pick up something touching and more contemporary, like Randy Pausch's Last Lecture, which has enjoyed 94 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List.
