I find myself reminiscing about the past and sometimes yearning I could re-live old memories with friends in different cities. But the truth is that no matter how hard you try to re-create things, it will never be the same. You just have to live the moment! Now that summer is fast approaching there’s no better time to get started. So grab a friend or venture out solo. South Florida puts carpe diem at our fingertips.

Indulge your palate

If you love food but your wallet is ready to file for bankruptcy, I highly recommend checking out the Coral Gables Restaurant Week Kick Off. It’s your chance to sample pure deliciousness from a variety of incredible restaurants and find a new favorite food spot. The best part is that with a price tag of $10-$15, you can tantalize your taste buds without having to use a bulldozer to yank an ATM machine. The gastronomical fun starts June 4.

Treat your senses

Get ready for a summer of kick-ass girl power. Bombshells Rihanna, Shakira, and Christina Aguilera are coming to town. You know their concerts are going to be out-of-control! If you are a hardcore fan, I know you’ll be there (if you haven’t already bought tickets) but if you’re more of the local band type, I recommend hitting up at least one these shows. You’re guaranteed to have a night to remember. If the show itself doesn’t impress you, dancing fans are sure to make you do a double take. So, start practicing your best dance moves because with the high-profile summer line up, hips are sure to be on fire!

Get your heart pumping

Hot summer sun + running? Only if there’s portable A.C.! Take the day to enjoy the beach and soak up the summer rays. And at night, once you’re relaxed and re-charged, throw on your running shoes and hit pavement for South Miami Hospital’s 22nd 5K Run and Fitness Walk. The moonlight run takes place on Sunday, June 6 at 7 p.m., and proceeds of this race will benefit the South Miami After School House and South Miami Police Explorers. This great cause will surely make you a twilight fan.

These are just a few ideas to ignite your summer groove on. Go out there, have fun! And remember, you’ll only have Summer of 2010 once, so make it count.
