Summer Bucket List

I cannot believe it is already the end of July! With life moving so quickly these days, I decided to make a list of all of my favorite summer activities that I want to accomplish before fall comes around. I look forward to the long, hot days of summer all year. It’s the year’s “Friday” after all, and that means taking life a little bit easier. Without wasting any more time, let’s get started! 

Reading. Reading. Reading. Currently I’m loving Into The Water by Paula Hawkins. Next up, Ohio by Stephen Markley. 


Road Trips. There is nothing more fun than driving up and down the California coast, making stops in our favorite cities along the way.

Lake Days. Going camping and floating the day away in the water is my perfect definition of summer.

At Home Spa. Spending an evening in the bath with a mask on my face and in my hair. I will light a few candles to set the mood and play my favorite jams. I feel rejuvenated in no time.

Beach Bonfire. Grab some hot dogs, marshmallows, and your closest friends and watch the fire with the warm ocean breeze on your face.

Ice Cream. Nothing cools me down better than a nice big scoop of one of my favorite flavors of ice cream–cookie dough, mint chip, or Marianne’s 1020. Indulging every once in a while never hurt anyone!

Nap Time. Let’s face it; life is tiring. Summertime naps are definitely allowed, and I always feel able to enjoy daylight savings a little longer when I’ve had a great snooze.

Jogging. I love to take an easy run outdoors first thing in the morning–something that isn’t always weather permitted the rest of the year.

The Drive-In. Talk about the quintessential date night!

Backyard BBQ. The best get togethers are always at a Barbecue, right?!
