Summer Bucket List

With last weekend being the "unofficial" start of summer (also known as my favorite time of the year), I can't help but think about all the things I have planned and want to do in the coming months. So I thought it would be fun to put my summer bucket list into words. In the past I've been guilty of saying something like "we have to go to the beach!" or "let's plan a weekend trip" and then it never happens. But not this year! I'm writing it all down and at the end of summer, I'll check back in and honestly tell you what I did and didn't do from this list. And who knows.. maybe I'll add more to it as more ideas pop into my head. (Feel free to give me suggestions!) 

Go to a concert
Travel outside the country 
Go to the beach
Plan a weekend getaway with friends
Photograph at least two places on this list
Go to a musical
Try 5 new ice cream places in NYC
Go to a museum
Visit one new indie bookstore
Go to a food festival
Attend one class of my choice (yoga? cooking?)
Binge a new TV show
Do one thing outside my comfort zone

What are some of your plans for the summer?

  1. I tend to have very unscheduled summers but I definitely plan on going to the Met at least a couple more times this summer (there are so many good exhibits right now!). My only other concrete plan is to eat a lot of ice cream because summer. Good luck with your bucket list!

  2. Good luck with your bucket list! There are many things I'd like to do too!

  3. Yay for a summer bucket list! I honestly think that you're going to be able to cross every single item off of this list - and that I'll get to come along too ;) I LOVE SUMMER!

  4. Adjust to life as a mommy of 2. Before then, relax until the sleepless nights begin. Your list is awesome. I wish you a wonderful summer!


with love,
