20 Things to Do This Summer: My Summer Bucket List 2018

Good morning! How is your week? It has been cool and rainy here and I am little sluggish. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of summer in the South. Although in the past I have lamented the hot, humid days I have to say at this late date I wish we would see more of them because Fall will soon be here. 

Each summer I make a "bucket list" of things I would like to do by the end of summer, this year is no different. This summer one of my goals is to make a conscious effort to SLOW down, turn off my social media and enjoy the moments. 

Here are the 20 things I have on my bucket list this summer. 

1. Make s'mores. 
2. Eat lots, and lots of cherries and peaches. 
3. Watch the fireworks. 
4. Take a road trip. 
5. Get out on my paddle board every weekend, weather permitting. 

6. Long walks on the beach. 
7. Have a picnic. 
8. Visit a National Park. 
9. Go home. 
10. Play croquet. 

11. Have a pillow fight with my nieces' and nephew. 
12. Make homemade ice cream
13. Go berry picking. 
14. Eat cotton candy. 

15. Host a BBQ for my Spanish neighbors. 
16. Go on a spontaneous adventure. 
17. Take a yoga class on the beach. 
18. Take a nap in a hammock. 

19. Go sailing.
20. Watch the lightening bugs. 
21. Last but not least...slow down and enjoy my family and friends. 

What do you have planned for this summer? Did you make a list, if not you should. Just jot a few things down for fun and share them with us!

Have a great day and a wonderful summer. 


  1. Love that you make a list each summer...a living bucket list! Except for the paddle boarding that was a terrible failure for me...I can make an effort to join along.

  2. LIGHTENING BUGS!WE do not have here...............I ADORE THEM!They make the night SO MAGICAL!

  3. Sounds like a great plan! I don't think I've had s'mores in ages.

  4. You have really sweet and simple goals, and those are the best!

    Cheers to a great summer!
