Summer Bucket List

I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for summer time. It’s been a challenging year and I feel like this season will be full of fun and time with dear friends.

I want to be intentional about the time I spend with them and also write notes to friends afar letting them know how much they mean to me.

I’m most excited about getting to go to my first blogging conference near Dallas and then later in the summer take a short vacation to the beach in Florida, my favorite US beach of all!

This summer also brings a tradition that I just started last year and that is celebrating my half birthday since it’s right near Christmas. Summer seems to be a better time to get friends together for a party.

And I’m in search of the best sno cone in Austin, Texas! There are many that boast the title so I look forward to finding out for myself, purple tongue and all!

Here’s my Summer 2016 Bucket List!

  1. Find the best sno cone in town
  2. Go wine tasting in the Texas Hill Country
  3. Send some snail mail to friends
  4. Go paddle boarding
  5. Make homemade popsicles
  6. Yoga hike
  7. Plan a half birthday party (mine is at Christmas)
  8. Attend my first Declare Conference
  9. Go to the beach in Ft. Lauderdale
  10. Float a lazy river
  11. Watch the sun set
  12. Zipline over Lake Travis
  13. See Babyface in concert
  14. Symphony in the Park
  15. Eat at Trailer Food Tuesday
  16. Pool pass @ Hotel Ella
  17. Visit Pearl Brewery in San Antonio
  18. Make pulled BBQ Beef Sandwiches
  19. Read a book
  20. Go to our neighborhood 4th of July parade

  1. Awww, I love all of the items on your summer bucket list–especially finding the best sno cone 🙂 That’s what summer is all about. I can’t wait to get out and enjoy the music, the foods, the sights, and the warmth of sunshine days. I friggin love this time of year so much 🙂

    Also enjoy your first bloggy conference–and yoga hike sounds incredible!

    • Thanks for stopping by Charlotte! This time of year brings such adventure. Have a great summer! I love your grateful lists BTW. Thanks again! Tracy

  2. I’ve always wanted to go paddle boating! I hope you get to try it this summer. My bucket list includes making homemade ice cream and trying to have a fantastic summer in the Arizona heat, which means staying indoors, lol!

    • Oh mercy, you’re in AZ! Woa! Stay cool, although I know that’ll be tough. Homemade ice cream sounds wonderful! Happy summer- Tracy
