Day 1672 | Summer 2019 Bucket List


I wouldn’t say we had the best first day of summer around here. I thought maybe a low-key day with nothing on the agenda would be the right way to ease into our months of freedom. As it turns out, the boys were not interested in being bored all day (on the first day!). Fingers crossed we get into a better routine around here or it’s going to be a long few months. Don’t worry, though, I’m hopeful tomorrow will be much better.

We’ve decided to put together a bucket list again this year (like we did in 2016) as a way of making sure we motivate ourselves to get out there and seize these beautiful and fleeting days. Without further ado, and in no particular order…
