My Summer Bucket List

Summer Bucket List 2018

The first day of summer was just a few days ago and the girls and I are very excited. This is the first summer that I am keeping a written bucket list. This is because sometimes I say that I want to do something and I end up getting busy and before I know it, the season is over and I missed my opportunity.

Everybody's summer goals are different, and this summer I plan on staying local and doing lots of fun things at home with my family.

1. Visit the Lavender Farm 
I went last weekend and it was amazing! you can read all about Blooming Hill Lavender Farm here.

2. Go to the pool.  
The girls and I spent as much time at the pool as we could. By the time my summer job ends, the pool will likely be closing or they will decrease their hours of operation. I'm disappointed that I didn't have more time at the pool because I love swimming so much. Next year we will go all the time.

3. Chase sunsets. 
I have already been lucky enough to chase a couple of incredible sunsets on our hikes and I can't wait to add new sunsets to my collection.
I didn't get to chase as many sunsets as I wanted to. We did get to go to our favorite hiking spot for sunset and it was dreamy. People go there every evening to sit and watch the sunset. I've never done it before and I was so happy I did. It was a beautiful experience. 

4. Chase rainbows.
I don't know what it is about my house, but it is the absolute perfect rainbow spot. If it rains in the summertime, usually there is a rainbow.

It has been one of my favorite things about where I live. I love rainbows because they give me so much joy.
5. Stargazing
I have tried stargazing last summer and I wasn't very successful. I am going to step my game up this year and I'll let you know how it goes.
6. Visit the beach.
Even though I don't think I will make it to Myrtle Beach this year, I still plan on visiting a beach sometimes this summer. There are several that aren't too far from me and the girls love to play in the sand and water.
7. Pick sunflowers and wildflowers
This one is tricky because 2 years ago I went flower picking and you guys it was SO freaking hot! I was absolutely miserable and it was not a pleasant experience. The flowers were pretty once I got them home but the heat was making it hard to enjoy so I think I am going to try and go on a cloudy day this year.
8. Eat dinner outside
There are lots of cute restaurants in downtown Winchester that I want to check out. They have cute outdoor patios so I'll be checking those out.
9. Pick up my wedding dress.
This is SO exciting! I'm pretty sure my dress will be completed before summer is over, and I will be road tripping with my besties to Teaneck, NJ to pick up the dress because I am just too anxious to have it in the mail.
OMG! So I picked up my Wedding Dress and it is absolutely the most beautiful dress I have ever seen! Of course I might be just a little bit biased! My wedding plans are coming along nicely and I only have a couple more weeks! Can't wait to share pics!
10. Have a water balloon fight. 
This is one of my favorite memories as a kid. I hope to get some water balloons this weekend. It's supposed to get very hot.
11. Get Ice cream from the local shops
There's an ice cream shop one minute from my house that has been around for decades. It's been rumored to be the best ice cream in town and we went there once last summer. The girls have been asking to go back.
12. Go on more hiking trips
I have found peace in the outdoors with hiking. I have been to some awesome trails in the spring and plan on hiking a lot more in the summer.
13. Visit a car show
When I was a kid my dad used to take us to look at cars anytime he got the chance. There would always be local car shows every friday and I remember it like it was yesterday. I really hope I make it to one this year!
I was so excited when I found out there was a car show only 1 minute from my house and luckily I was able to make it! I'm so happy!

  1. What a fun summer you’ve been having and it seems like you have a lot more to come! A summer bucket list is a great idea. I’ll have to remember this for next summer, or even squeeze a few things in this year.

  2. This is such a great post. So many things I plan to do too, but it's important to compile them into a list so that we actually get them done!
    Thank you for sharing
