Summer 2014 - Bucket List


This past weekend while sipping cold Somersby Ciders and enjoying our view, I put together a summertime bucket list. I hope to tick each and every item off this list before the end of August, but if all I can manage to do is what you see in this picture, I'd be fine with that.
 
 
* Relax on the beach as often as possible. Pack a lunch, drink cold beers, listen to summer classics and soak up the sun.
 
* Eat and drink on a patio whenever there is an option to do so.
 
* Relax in a hammock.

* Try Sushi for the first time.
 
* Go camping with my girlfriends.
 
* Be a regular at our local Farmer's Market.
 
* Make my own iced coffee.
 
* Say yes to being outside, walking, exploring and relaxing with my feet up. On week days especially, I need to learn how to shake the tiredness I feel after work and remember that house work can wait...
 
* Go on a spontaneous road trip with G, no real plan of where we're going or what we're going to do, but time to do it.
 
* Play a game of soft ball.

* Take advantage of having a clothes line, get in the habit of hanging clothes out to dry.
 
* Watch the sun come up.
 
* Make a new friend.
 
* Spend an afternoon skipping and playing hopscotch with my niece, and teaching the kiddies fun games I used to play outside.
 
* Play a game of beach volleyball.
 
* Buy new sneakers and break them in.
 
* Spend the night in an open field, sleeping on the back of a truck with lots of pillows, blankets and citronella candles. Just me and G, a sky full of stars and our favorite playlist.
 
* Watch fireworks light up a night sky.

* Spend the day at Magic Cove (A local paradise)
 
* Hit up as many community festivals as possible.
 
* Stop at yard sales and flea markets.

* Plan a picnic.
 
* Skinny dip. You'd think this would be easy considering we own a pool, but believe it or not, I did not skinny dip once last year.
 
* Arrange a photo shoot with my hubby.
 
* Go hiking.

* Stand under a waterfall.
