2016 Summer Bucket List

Since making my 101 in 1001 list back in January, I have crossed 13 things off the list. I have been having so much fun checking things off, from meeting other bloggers in person, to playing in my first varsity golf match, to baking a tiered cake with friends. Even if you don't have a blog, I highly recommend creating your own 101 in 1001 list as it helps you organize and execute your ideas and plans for the next three-ish years in a fun and unique platform. Personally I find crossing things off of a list extremely rewarding, so this has encouraged me to try new things and check as much as possible off of my bucket list. 

Because tomorrow is my last day of school and we are finally kicking off the start of summer, I thought that I would pull out 10 things from my list and try to accomplish them over the next few months. Taking advantage of free time during the summer is so important. I think that these ten bucket list items can definitely be accomplished this summer, especially as some of them are specific to the Cape and spending time at the beach. My top two items I want to accomplish this summer are definitely going on a road trip with friends and learning to drive our boat. We are already planning on driving up to New York to visit my friend Clare at her house on Lake Ontario, and my dad has been nagging me about driving the boat for the past two years. Fingers crossed I get all of these accomplished- I will report back Labor Day Weekend!

  5. I love drafting up a summer bucket list! It always signifies the start of vacation, and I like to plan around my goals :) A road trip sounds like a blast, as does a bike ride to Cape Cod - I hope you're able to do both! Have a lovely summer break!
