Summer 2014 Bucket List

posted by yazmin

I love to make lists. I make them for everything — love list, grocery shopping, Christmas presents, home repairs, packing — the list goes on and on. What I really like doing is crossing things off of the list. Sometimes I’ll write something on the list that has already been done just so I can cross it off (weird, I know!). It helps organize my brain and makes me feel as though I’m making progress toward a goal.

When Chris and I came home from college in the summers we used to make a list of things we wanted to do together before we went back to school. It was fun to think of ways to fill our summer. I thought it would be a fun idea to do that again this summer. I’m going to call it my Summer Bucket List. I’ve broken it down into two categories: things I want to do with the family, and things I’d like to do for myself.
