Summer Bucket List

self care for the soul summer bucket list

Hello beautiful! My name is Victoria and I’m incredibly delighted to have you visit my blog today. I hope you stay a while, because I have a bunch of awesome ideas for your summer bucket list.

Summertime is almost here! I have a love hate relationship with summer. I’m not a fan of extreme heat, and I hate getting bit by mosquitoes, but summer is such a beautiful time of year. I love staying out late and going for walks outside at night because it is so warm.

I love going to the beach and spending time at the pool, I love going on road trips and eating outside, there are just so many things to love about summer.

Having a summer bucket list ensures that by the time summer is over, you can look back and see that you made so many memories and did so many fun things. After all, time flies when you’re having fun.

It’s easy to look at summer and think of how quickly it passed, but with a summer bucket list, you can write down everything that you really want to do and have it available to motivate you to do those things.

As you know, we are currently in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, and for some of us, this summer will be different from any other summer we’ve experienced. I am in Virginia, U.S. and as it stands right now, I just don’t see the pools opening this summer.

It’s devastating, but that’s why I’m making a list now so that when summer arrives, I’ll have a ton of fun things to do with my family.

Most of these ideas are geared towards adults, but kids can do most of them too! Summer is what you make it, these are just my top suggestions.

    How inspiring. I’ve been meaning to create my own bucket list, but keep falling behind on this. Thank you for that push. I’ll definitely be using this for inspiration!
