Summer Bucket List

Summer 2016 Bucket List

Happy Friday! With several days running of 90-degree temps, summer has officially arrived in NYC. It’s hands-down my favorite season, even with the humidity creeping up, insane weekend traffic, and smelly city garbage {I’m telling you, it’s a thing}. But this time of year we also get weekend beach trips, dining alfresco, boating, sunbathing, frozen drinks, ice cream, fiery sunsets and the list goes on…

With so much to squeeze into a few months, I always struggle to strike a balance of being proactive about scheduling trips and events while also keeping some days free for spontaneity. To make sure we don’t lose sight of just how great summer can be–or get caught up in all of our plans–I made a summer bucket list for myself again this year.

You guys know I’m a list lover, not only for organizational purposes but for helping me feel accomplished. When it comes to this bucket list, though, it’s less about ensuring we check everything off the list by Labor Day, but staying focused on making the most of the season. Summer Bucket List // Get the most out of this summer

This year’s summer bucket list includes:

  • Visit a National Park — they are celebrating the 100th anniversary!
  • Buy fresh & local by frequenting our neighborhood farmer’s market on Sundays or Wednesdays
  • Make a {fashion} investment — I might have a plan for this one during an upcoming trip…
  • Try a new hairstyle — when it’s hot out, it’s easy to get lazy, but these simple ideas are inspiring me to do more than a simple blow-out.
  • Play outdoors — T-man loves to play tennis so I need to make it a point to get out there and be active.
  • Take more photos — step one, bring my DSLR everywhere.
  • Learn something new — as a kid I made things out of clay, sewed doll clothes and was always teaching myself a new skill. Summer seems like a good time to resurrect that learning mentality.
  • Make popsicles — yummmm.
  • Gaze at the stars — somewhere outside of Manhattan!
  • Indulge in a beach read — I’ve been working my way through Atlas Shrugged, which is over 1,100 pages so vacation this year will be only lighthearted romance novels.
  • Get unplugged — am I the only one still struggling to PUT. THE PHONE. DOWN?
  • Be totally spontaneous — you never know when or where inspiration will strike; be open to it.

Now it’s your turn, I’d love to know what’s topping your bucket list this summer!
