What’s on your summer bucket list?

what's on your summer bucket list?

Cotton Candy summer

I am a list maker. Usually the pen and ink kind. Mainly because a visual list is a much better reminder for me than a mental one, so with summer vacation starting this week, it was time to make a good one. A summer bucket list for things to do on my own, with Gabe, or with my little ones. But see I make lists malleable. They can be changed and adjusted as needed;) A flexible, open ended, continuous strand of ways to make the most of the summer ahead….


Bring the little ones to the beach for the first time

Grow a small garden

End the search for the perfect pair of sunglasses

Collect a few good stories from an older generation

Farmers markets

Taste Atlanta’s best ice cream shops

Be penpals with my grandmother

Catch a thunderstorm

Read a hardcover book from front to back

Bonfires and s’mores

Hike a new mountain

Outdoor movie nights

Take a ride in an open top car

Cotton candy

Host a few backyard shindigs

Listen to an outdoor concert

Snap a few polaroids

Experiment with drink and popsicle recipes 

Have a baby

Hold that baby and do nothing else for weeks after


I am sure my ambitious summer loving heart will be adding to this list.
What is on your summer bucket list? We’d love some more ideas!

  • I love a good list too. Love the idea of growing your own watermelon! Also, if you want a great place to hike near the atl area–check out the len foote hike inn. The base of the trail is at the top of the amicalola falls. It’s named after my grandfather so I’m biased 😉 but it’s a great hike!

  • I, too, am a list lover and this one is completely inspiring. Thank you : ).

  • This is the best list!

  • I love your summer bucket list! There are so many items on there that I just want to wrap up in my heart so I can enjoy their warmth. My summer contains a whole lot of travel, but I really hope I can make some time in there for items like the ones on your list.

  • What a great list! Thanks for some inspiration! I’m absolutely going to copy you and become pen pals with my grandma (even if she does live only 20 minutes away)! What a treasure those letters will be one day.
    Of course my favorite items on you list are the last two… 😉

    I would like to travel to heaven to have a morning with my mom.She died 3 years ago. I miss her a lot but also I feel . have unfinished business with her. I would like her to tell me she loves me.

  • […] have a pretty simple summer bucket list. It is more like a summer goals list. One of the musts: S’mores. And then repeat as often as […]
