Seasonal Bucket Lists

I love the idea of a seasonal bucket list.

I have a constant worry that I’m going to run out of time or forget to do the things I want to do, for myself or for our family. I get very caught up in day-to-day life, and I like having a reminder of things I want to do during a particular season – things like berry picking during the summertime, or ice skating during winter. They tend to be activities that require a little money and planning.

I am forever and always trying to come up with new ways to organize my life, thoughts, and planning. Recently, I started jotting down things that I want to make sure are on one of our seasonal bucket lists. I’ve been using the Google Keep app, which is just a clear and visually pleasing means for organizing a bunch of my to-do lists. When I have a seasonal bucket list, it makes me feel calmer – like I’m less likely to forget All The Things.

This year, more than ever, it feels good to make a list of fun things we want to try to make happen during the summertime. This isn’t our full bucket list, but here are a few things I hope we check off this summer:

  • Visit our local farmers market.
  • Swim lessons.
  • The beach.
  • Orchard.
  • The Smithsonians.
  • Leakin Park train.
  • New York.
  • Ukazoo.
  • Canoeing.
  • Tubing.
  • Hammerman Beach (including tire playground)!
  • Sandy Point.
  • Playground bucket list! (More on this at some point.)

Happy summer, everyone! Cheers to the return to semi-normal.
