Summer Bucket List

I'm still finishing up the spring quarter and can't wait for summer vacation to start in a few weeks! Especially since most of my teaching friends have been off for weeks...

I'm excited to join Leslie, who also introduced me to writing one Sentence a Day, in writing a summer bucket list.



My bucket list is pretty modest with only ten items, but many of them are weekly items. It's about making time for simple things and being grateful for them and enjoying them to the fullest.

2017 Summer Bucket List

1. Make at least five day trips to the beach.
2. Read three fun books.
3. Go to the farmers' market at least once a week.
4. Go on one hike per week.
5. Take two barre and/or yoga classes per week.
6. Sleep in at least once per week.
7. Barbecue at least once per week.
8. Spend time in the patio every day.
9. Swim at least four times per week.
10. Make good use of our Great America and Monterey Bay Aquarium season passes.  



Write your own summer bucket list and link up your post here: 









Question: What's on your summer bucket list? 

Be well,
Andrea

  7. I love this list Andrea. So often, we get caught up in the "big" goals or plans and forget to enjoy the little moments that make up the majority of our lives. Happy summer!

    1. Thanks, Christie! After I was done writing the list I realized that it consisted mainly of "normal" activities, but I'm actually really glad that I'll be "forced" to keep track of them and, hopefully, do them more often... :-) Happy Summer to you!

  8. Sounds like a lovely relaxed Summer, Andrea. Sun, sand and reading just perfect for me. I love yoga as well and did ballet when I was young but haven't tried barre classes I should though. Have a great Summer!

    1. Thanks, Sue! I'm pretty sure you would love barre classes. They do wonders for my low back, which gets aggravated quite often... Have a wonderful summer!

  10. Lvoe your list. I just started taking a barre class recently and love it. Although my barre classes uses a weight stick instead of a tradition ballet bar, but it's super fun!

  12. That's quite a big list! I hope you fit it all in. I would be happy to get time to exercise just once a week. I'm aiming on that xx

    1. It is quite a list but since there aren't any "big" items on it, I hope I'll be able to accomplish it and just really focus on making the most of every day...

  13. Andrea I like your list. I really wish I could go to the beach to swim more often but after going one day I need the next day to recuperate. I really like the idea of hanging out on the patio, that doesn't wear me out at all.

    1. Swimming in the ocean is very strenuous exercise! I have to get used to just swimming in the pool... And, yes, hanging out in the patio is the perfect way to recuperate... :-)

  14. Yikes! That's actually a pretty big list boiled down into a smaller format!

    Good for you to have weekly and seasonal goals. We are big farmers' market people, so much fun and so many different colors, vendors and fresh food to see! One of our favorite things to do on a Saturday morning :-)
