Summer is close approaching, to which I can' t wait. The excitement my family and I feel is only increasing in volume as the prospect of fabulous adventures dance through our heads. The last few summers if I am being honest have been more about work than memorable sunny moments. Not this year through we love our company, but we love getting outdoors and appreciating the simple joys in life. We have a 2019 bucket list for fantastically fun adventures to find ourselves in this summer.
Here's our list, don't forget to share yours.
Maybe we can add or swap some outstanding summer fun ideas.
Makayla has had this dream of paddle boarding this one particular beautifully clear lake for the past 2 years. This is the year we are planning on taking this off our adventure list.
I love the idea of riding a bike. It's freeing and I'm not even going to pretend that every time I pop on my bike for a ride I instantly don't feel like a kid again.
This is always on our list. I love spending time outdoors and well it relaxes me. It's a way for me to completely unplug from the internet world and just take in the sights and sounds of sweet mother nature.
Exploring A New City
This is a new one for us. We have decided to pick a few random city in our state and play tourist. Normally we just do this within our own community, but this year we are venturing out for new experiences and new adventures.
Play Tourist At Home
I love doing this one. It's a way for us to connect with our local community as well as see what those who are traveling into our community see when they get here.
Seeing An Outdoor Play
Outdoor plays are my jam, they are an amazing opportunity to witness the clash of nature and art of acting. Out here on the island we have a community Shakespeare festival. It's a fabulous festival, that all should go see at least once.
Wine and Dine Under The Stars
My goal this year is to create a nice large lounge space out on the back porch where we can lay underneath the stars just enjoy the moment.
Concert In The Park
I grew up attending concerts in the park. I'm really excited that we finally have a park close by who is playing concerts in the park over the summer. I tend to pack a fun snack and of course a blanket to lay on and enjoy the music.
Send a Real Letter
When was the last time you wrote a really snail mail letter to someone? When I was younger I use to have pen pails that I wrote to on a weekly basses. Yet with the growth of the internet and texting its something I haven't done in decades, yes decades so guess what I'm sending out letters, real handwritten letters to those I love!
Lay In The Sun
I have been so overwhelmed with work and life in general that I had to put this on my list. Think about it, how often are you penciling in time to just lay in the sun. No reading, no phone, no computer, nothing but you basking in the ray of sunlight.
Collect Moments Not Things
I want more moment, lots more moments. I want to fully enjoy life and the everyday little things we take for granted.
Learn A Few New Recipes
I finally own my very own dream kitchen. I love spending time in the kitchen and creating meals, treats and snakes for all of us to enjoy together. So learning a few new recipes is on my bucket list!
Okay I know Farmers markets are my thing. Everyone knows I love them, I love going to them, I love shopping at them, and I love the people who work them. Therefore it makes sense that it made it onto my summer bucket list!
Keep it Simple
My plan this summer is to keep things simple. A freshly squeezed cup of lemonade, walks around the neighborhood, it's the simple things. It's the small experiences that create a whole amazing love filled life.
