You know that feeling when you realize summer is almost over and you haven’t done nearly half the things you hoped to? I know summer has only started, but I feel like it will be over before we know it. To avoid the end of summer blues, we decided to make a “Summer Bucket List” this year! After all, I am the queen of lists, so why not add another one to the books!

I started out just writing some of our to-do’s on a scrap piece of paper. I then progressed to divide the paper in four’s because our summer bucket list is a mix of fun, house, family and other things. It helps to break it up to make sure that not everything on the list is work (although we are working on a lot of house renovations so it is still house – work heavy). Visualizing it also helps to see how realistic our goals might be, especially given the short summer around here. It’s a dynamic list and I am sure we will add to it over the summer, but I love that we have something to refer back to and get inspired by.

It always seems like when you have time to do a fun activity you can’t think of what to do, yet you always think of things to do when you’re busy. If you make a list or idea bank of things you’d like to see or explore then you can refer back on those lazy summer days!
