One rarely talked about perk of having children is they help you get back in touch with the simple joys of summer. In my twenties and early thirties, I was guilty of letting time slip by, making plans last minute and only enjoying the spontaneity of living day to day. There have been summers I was so busy traveling and working, they would pass by in a blink.
As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized there are merits to balancing both ways of living—to intentionally work toward making plans a reality while leaving room to wing it as well. My hope is that the bucket list I put together here will allow for a little of both.

Thank you for being here. For being open to enjoying life’s simple pleasures and looking inward to understand yourself, your neighbors, and your fellow humans! I’m looking forward to chatting with you.
Ohh! I would love to hear more about 19!! Love this list.
Good to know! I may share more on it this summer!
Love all of these. Thanks for the inspiration!
Thank you for taking the time to read!
Instead of using your phone to take photos, look into doing film instead. The limited amount of shots and not being able to see how they look right away, will allow you to SAVOR the photography experience more.
That’s a great idea, thank you for sharing!
